This unit on Benjamin Franklin covers so many Common Core goals that it would take up too much room to list them! During this unit, students will read, analyze, and synthesize information. They will work independently, in partners, and small groups. They will problem solve, design, create, and present with a hands-on activity. They will apply aphorisms and Franklin’s chart of virtues to real life. They will write a poem, proofread Franklin’s work, solve a vocabulary puzzle, and reflect. They will do all of these activities while learning so much about Benjamin Franklin! You'll enjoy how this unit takes a piece of older literature and relates it to today's times and teens.
