This set of close read passages with foldables for interactive notebooks is perfect for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Black History Month.
This product can be used in multiple different ways. You can read the passages during guided small groups, as a read to self activities, as a read to someone activity, as bell work or whole group. The amount of support that you give will depend on the level of readers that you have.
Each passage has two questions that ask students to find evidence from the text and underline in a certain color.
After reading, students can make the foldable to accompany each passage. The foldable gives students a place to record important facts from the passage. Encourage students to record the facts in their own words and to choose the facts that they think are the most important. The pictures of my completed notebook will help you to see how to attach each foldable.
These passages and foldables can be glued into your social studies notebooks. If you do not have social studies notebooks, you could put loose leaf paper in a folder or stapled into a large piece of construction paper that has been folded in half.
You can complete all 12 of the passages or just choose the ones you are most interested in. You can do them all during February for Black History Month or do some during January when you study Martin Luther King, Jr.
I hope that you enjoy this interactive approach to teaching history!
