Looking for resources to teach ALL the content of the 9 historical figures in third grade? This unit contains research questions for each historical figure that can be answered using the American Heroes biography books from the Houghton Mifflin Our Democracy textbook. Please make sure you have these books to accompany your students' research before purchasing this unit. I love using these questions, because the biographies can be a lot to process for some of my students. These questions pull out the information the students need to know for the standards!
3rd grade historical figures include Mary Bethune, FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Frederick Douglass, Paul Revere, Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony, and Thurgood Marshall.
This unit also contains:
-a sheet to record the places of significant events and a map to chart the places for each historical figure
-Posters of each figure with four stars that have key words to remind students of important concepts
-vocabulary flash cards
-character trait flash cards
-unit test for character traits and historical figures
-teacher answer guide for research questions, map skills questions, and unit test
