This resource about Samuel de Champlain is an informational reading and writing activity unit for upper elementary students, to be used in an ELA class or a Social Studies class. It is perfect to include in a unit on Acadia or New France. The texts are continuous but do not have to be read all at once.
The four one-page texts about Champlain begin with a “before you read” question, and each has:
--- a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion);
--- a page vocabulary/grammar work;
--- each text has a short creative writing activity.
There are 12 pages of reading and writing work for students.
A complete answer key is included.
The four texts, each illustrated and about 450 words in length are:
Part 1 – Who was Samuel de Champlain?
Part 2 – Champlain and the New World
Part 3 – Champlain’s Habitation
Part 4 – Champlain’s Legacy
The passages examine Champlain’s accomplishments and his place in Canadian history. Questions are designed to encourage inquiry and understanding of reading.
