Students will love learning all about Ben Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, with this hands-on resource! This pack includes passages, organizers, vocabulary posters, comprehension and connection questions and lots of activities and a flip book!

Ben Franklin was a man of many talents! He is still remembered today as a great writer, publisher, inventor, scientist, humanitarian, and American hero. He played a very important role in America becoming a free and independent nation.

This Benjamin Franklin Activity Pack includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including:
*Informational articles about:
*Young Ben
*Benjamin Franklin as an inventor
*Improving Philadephia
*His Role in the Revolutionary War
*Meet Benjamin Franklin
*Benjamin Franklin Organizer
*Famous Quote with questions
*Vocabulary Posters
*Vocabulary Flip Flaps
*Mystery Flaps
*5 Page Benjamin Franklin Flip-Up Booklet

There are 3 main activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Next, have students read the informational articles and character study where they will meet Benjamin Franklin and learn all about his life. It starts with him as a young boy and it continues through his role in the Revolutionary War and beyond. The articles are written in the form of a booklet with questions and scenes for students to connect and color. Pages can be stapled at the top to make one large booklet that fits inside their interactive notebooks or can be cut in half to create a mini-booklet. There’s a custom-created Benjamin Franklin organizer to use for review at the end of the unit or for further research.

There are lots of other student activities in this pack including a famous quote page with questions, Benjamin Franklin Mini-Booklet with a timeline, a quote with critical thinking questions, and a custom-created organizer for further research or reviewing. Have students complete the Mystery Flaps and the 5 page Flip-Up Booklet all about Benjamin Franklin. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
