Have you ever wondered where the tradition of giving an apple to the teacher began? Are you interested in knowing how pencils were invented? Do you remember your first character lunch box? Well, you and your students will love reading about the history and traditions of American schools. These 12 engaging, informational text posters will give your students the answers to these questions and more.
This is a perfect activity to get kids reading. Print and hang the posters and have your students Read the Room. Or, print out the black and white versions, bind in books, and let each student have his own copy.
Great for group work, centers, and fast finishers!
Also included is a scavenger hunt to encourage students to find interesting information.
