John Franklin: Arctic Explorer includes a two-part informational text about the explorer, focusing on his achievements in the Arctic.
Each of the two passages also include:
--- a vocabulary activity: six “words to watch for” are listed on each text page and on the activity page for each passage students then match the word with its definition
--- comprehension questions;
--- an organizer to complete (with both factual and opinion questions - students can be instructed to use complete sentences when answering). This could be used for reinforcing information learned or as an assessment.
I also have a new FREE item listed concerning the recent finds off Nunavut of Franklin's ships. It would be a perfect follow-up resource for this listing. It can be seen here:
