Benjamin Franklin 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.
