The main focus of this lesson is to help students improve their reading skills by comparing and contrasting two different texts - 'Desert Life' and 'Meet a Hermit Crab'. Additionally, it encourages students to share information about themselves and their friends.
The lesson uses multiple-choice questions in an Exit Slip section to assess student understanding. Also, there are worksheets provided for additional practice.
If students struggle with any concepts during the lesson, there's a segment called 'More Practice.' This provides extra time for practice and clearing up any misconceptions.
