♒♒♒♒♒♒
Why do I think you will love my passages? I work very hard to research the information. I try to include a lot of info. and not leave gaps in history like some textbooks do. I try to write passages on one topic, so that it is easier for upper elementary to digest. I have been told I have a writing style that makes the topics easy to learn. I have taught the information for twenty years, PLUS... a bonus is that I confer with my husband who has taught US History for nearly twenty five years and has a Master's degree in US History. I can assure you that we make a great team when it comes to US History! ♥

This passage covers details of Benedict Arnold and his involvement in the American Revolution. It touches on a few of his successes in the military and how he felt he was not properly credited. It tells about how he turned on America. It further discusses his passing of secret information to a British spy in order to help the British gain an American Fort (which was unsuccessful), and how he then fought for the British. It touches on how he is now remembered in history as an American traitor.

This passage will work as a reading or social studies lesson. It can be used to introduce Benedict Arnold or even to review details about him before test time.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The passage is copied as a booklet style, meaning you will print on the front and back of one page. Students will then fold the one page booklet, so that there is a cute cover. When they open it up, they find the passage on the inside. It will glue perfectly inside their notebook.

Once the passage is glued in their notebook, they can glue the flippable in the notebook. The flippable has 5 questions that go along with the passage.

==================

Benedict Arnold is covered in our Georgia social studies standards as part of the American Revolution. This passage was written with 4th graders in mind, but it could be used with students beyond that grade, as well. Even if you are not a teacher in Georgia though, it will work perfectly, as they are non-fiction and don’t include anything specific to the state of Georgia.

Please... if you ever notice anything in my passages that needs to be corrected, such as factual information, please send me a message before you rate the product. I do my best to research thoroughly and provide historical facts. I can look back over and have a new copy uploaded fairly quickly.

Also, if you notice typos or anything else, that is appreciated too. Even with several sets of eyes looking over my work, at times a word can be missed. Thanks so much ahead of time.

I appreciate each and every person that supports my love of creating fun activities.
