There are 3 main activities in this activity pack:
Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too. In addition, the vocabulary flip flaps are great for interactive notebooks.

Reading passages about Clara Barton's Incredible Life Story:
Next, have students read the articles and character studies where they will meet Clara Barton and learn about her life story. It starts with her as a young girl and continues to tell her life story. The articles are written with scenes for students to connect and color.

Student Activities:
Have students complete the comprehension questions, and other activities, and 5 page Flip Book. For the Clara Barton Flip Book, you could have students do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-Up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
