Product Description
A continent that started from a rebellion has grown into a thriving land. Conflict has fueled wars, and the culture is more like a melting pot. As one of the youngest continents, North America continues to grow.

This unit has 12 main reading comprehension passages that covers most of the Tennessee 3rd grade social studies standards. What make these non-fiction texts a little different is the questioning style. Instead of "Write the answer," students are required to SHOW their answer with text evidence and colors! This is easy to grade and encourages deep reading of the non-fiction text. Along with the passages there are activities for students to complete in interactive notebooks and in group setting. So much fun! Let's bring a little life back into social studies!
