Follow the directions below to share your great mind work after enjoying these fascinating articles on NEWSELA. 1. Go to your NEWSELA account on safari by typing in www.newsela.com.

Choose two of the articles to read that I assigned to our class. 3. Come back to this activity tab and click the add button to post your thinking. 4. Click on the label button to type a "Cross-Text" summary of both articles. Remember, cross text means to write about what was similar and different between the two texts. 5.
