No-prep, 5th grade test-prep "true story" reading passages!
With this resource, students will read interesting stories about famous people in history that are rarely told. For example students will learn about George Washington's reputation as a strongman and his memorable weightlifting competitions with his soldiers or how Theodore Roosevelt carried thieves across the country in a covered wagon in his earlier years! After each passage, students will respond to critical thinking reading questions directly aligned to the 5th Grade STAAR reading TEKS such as character traits, tone, mood, theme, figurative language, plot, summary and etc. The “true stories” have been collected to motivate students to want to learn about historical events and leaders in a fun unsuspecting way. it is also an excellent tool to encourage students to read more critically. Print and Go Reading Practice!
The passages may be used as daily warm-ups, test-prep, tutoring or as an excellent resource to integrate reading and social studies.
I have included "stories rarely told" about the following historical figures:
Salem Witch Trials
Females Who Fought in the Civil War
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
