Stories from Social Studies are central to the Mind Missions experience. Leveled text stories provide informational text that meets students at their most appropriate reading level. The right leveled story will be easy to comprehend and challenging enough to allow for progress. Lessons for Third Grade are offered at three lexile levels that allow for growth throughout the year. Beginning stories are provided at a 500-600 lexile measure. On-level stories measure at a 600-700 lexile. Above-level Mind Missions stories measure at a 700-800 lexile level. Using the most appropriate reading level encourages students to love informational text and the wonderful stories found in Mind Missions.
