PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains 8 nonfiction passages relating to The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Each passage is offered at 2 levels. The approximate Lexile® was found using the Lexile® analyzer found at Lexile.com. When I made this product I had my upper elementary aged and middle school students in mind and wanted to expose them to material that was seasonal, historical, unfamiliar, and motivating. Melissa Sweet’s book, Balloons Over Broadway (book not included in download), provides rich text, robust vocabulary, and beautiful illustrations. I think it is appropriate for high school speech-language students as well. Each passage is followed by several comprehension questions calling for higher-order thinking and context clues.

Topics include: The First Macy’s Parade
Tony Sarg
The History of the Macy’s Balloons
Puppets, Marionettes, and Balloons
