Product Description
This newly updated product is a unit on the life of Bessie Coleman, the first African-American female pilot and is part of my Famous African-Americans Biography Series Bundle. It includes a biography, comprehension questions for deep thinking, and 20 activities! Everything you need is here!

This unit can stand alone with the included biography or can incorporate the picture book Fly High! The Story of Bessie Coleman by Louise Borden and Mary Kay Kroeger.

THIS UNIT INCLUDES:

★ Bessie Coleman original biography – 639 words, so it would be appropriate for advanced 2nd graders through 5th grade.
★ Comprehension Question Cards for the included biography – great for literature circles!
★ Vocabulary cards and matching definitions and also a vocabulary foldable
★ Bessie Coleman character foldable with an I Am Bessie Coleman bio poem on the inside.
★ Walk in my footsteps Bessie Coleman – accordion book retelling/sequencing activity
★ Bessie Coleman bio graphic organizer
★ I’ve Got to Hand It To You! Bessie Coleman – activity where students write 5 accomplishments or character traits on the fingers of a hand. Great to cut out and display on a bulletin board.

HOW CAN I USE THIS PRODUCT?

Whole Class Instruction – Many of the activities can be done with the whole class. You can pick and choose which ones you want your students to use.
Guided Reading Groups – I love to use this unit in guided reading groups. The question cards lend
themselves to wonderful discussions. You can also use the fact or opinion card sorts and many of the graphic organizers during guided reading group time.
♦ Literature Circles - The discussion cards in this unit are wonderful to use during literature circles.
If you want to focus on a single literacy skill such as summarization or character analysis, there are many graphic organizers which can be completed during literature circle group time.
♦ In a Center – Some of the activities lend themselves well to being used in a center – vocabulary
card match, creative writing activities, etc. These would be especially good to use as extra challenges for your earlyfinishers and high achievers.
♦ Independent Study – Use the Tic-Tac-Toe board and have students select three activities to complete independently.
