Two great activities that would span five lessons about the life of Founding Father of the United States and famous scientist, Benjamin Franklin. Great for class work, distance learning and home schooling. Perfect for 3rd Grade or 4th Grade learning about U.S. History and the American Revolutionary War.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about U.S. History.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
