    This bundle contains 16 no-prep lessons for each unit in early history from Prehistory through the French Revolution. They are designed as an overview for each topic, perfect for an introduction or a review lesson -- or stand-alone if time is short. Students engage in various activities that encourage close reading and checks for understanding. It also includes a little fun!

    Each lesson contains:

    1. A 2-page, approximately 650 word reading passage (print-friendly in black and white)
    2. A modified version of the reading with bolded annotations to guide struggling readers
    3. A 2-page activity worksheet with vocabulary, picture analysis and a puzzle
    4. Link to a Google version of the reading and activity
    5. An answer key when applicable

    There is a suggested short video you can use at the beginning of the lesson to serve your visual learners.

    How nice would it be to know you have a complete lesson for every new unit?!

    Each lesson is approximately 50 minutes in duration and designed for grades 6 through 9.

    Some activities include color coding various parts of the reading, gamified assignments such as tic-tac-toe and connect4, quotatation analysis, political cartoons, terminology, quotation interpretation, finding evidence and so much more!
