This is a Civil War BUNDLE that includes 11 biographies of Civil War Heroes. Are you studying the the Civil War? How about abolitionists or other topics related to the Civil War? Do you love interactive notebooks? If so, this bundle of 11 passages and interactive notebook flippable activities will work perfectly for you.
UPDATE: I now offer this in my MEGA SS bundle
Why do I think you will love my passages? I work very hard to research the information. I try to include a lot of info. and not leave gaps in history like some textbooks do. I try to write passages on one topic, so that it is easier for upper elementary to digest. I have been told I have a writing style that makes the topics easy to learn. I have taught the information for twenty years, PLUS... a bonus is that I confer with my husband who has taught US History for nearly twenty five years and has a Master's degree in US History. I can assure you that we make a great team when it comes to US History!
Scroll down for links to the passages in this pack. You will also find links to passages on other topics.
These passages will work as a reading or social studies lesson. They can be used to introduce the people or even to review details about their life before test time.
The 11 passages are copied as a booklet style, meaning you will print on the front and back of one page. Students will then fold the one page booklet, so that there is a cute cover. When they open it up, they find the passage on the inside. It will glue perfectly inside their notebook.
Once the passage is glued in their notebook, they can glue the flippable in the notebook. The flippables have 5 questions that go along with each passage.
These influential people of the Civil War are covered in our Georgia social studies standards. The passages were written with 4th-5th graders in mind, but they could be used with students beyond that grade, as well. Even if you are not a teacher in Georgia though, they will work perfectly, as they are non-fiction and don’t include anything specific to the state of Georgia.
