    Bundle Description
    Basic and advanced crossword puzzles to accompany the first six episodes of the series! Each puzzle comes with a word bank option for even more differentiation, along with full solution keys and vocabulary / study lists to help teachers teach and students learn! 12 puzzles in all!


    America: The Story of US is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episodes 1-6, taking students from the early settlement of the colonies all the way to the expansion of the nation in the aftermath of the Civil War.


    ABOUT THIS AMERICA THE STORY OF US CROSSWORD PUZZLE BUNDLE

    This download includes six different worksheet sets, one for each episode in the first half of America: The Story of US.. Each worksheet set provides both student materials and instructor answer keys, including everything needed to use the puzzles as a review worksheet or quiz covering the target episode of the series!

    For each included puzzle, you’ll get two answer keys:

    • A traditional crossword answer key consisting of a solution grid accompanied by the list of clues students used.
    • A vocabulary / study list answer key that can make it easier to go over answers out loud with the class. With the list format, you won’t have to hunt for a term on the grid – you can find it listed right alongside its corresponding clue!


    DESIGNED FOR DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING!

    I believe in differentiating instruction to best meet student needs. This puzzle bundle therefore offers you a lot of different difficulty levels and options.

    • To start with, for each episode included, there are two different puzzles, designated A and B. Puzzle A is the “advanced” level, containing a variety of both “need to know” and “nice to know” items from the target episode of America: The Story of US.
    • Puzzle B is the “basic” level, consisting of a simplified version of Puzzle A. As such, it focuses mostly on high-priority “need to know” historical information.
    • Both the advanced and basic puzzles are differentiated even further – each one is provided in both a standard format and a word bank format. The standard format just offers students clues and a grid to fill in, while the word bank format also provides students with an alphabetized list of all the answers. The word bank option can be the best approach for students who need that little extra boost to help them be able to tackle the puzzle review with confidence!
    • This works out to 12 puzzles total, each one presented both with and without a word bank option. Six of the twelve puzzles are at a basic/easy level, and six of them are at a challenge/advanced level! This should help teachers cover all the bases when it comes to differentiation!
