Resource Details

This thorough packet includes clear and accurate biographies on the top five Founding Fathers of America. The passages are written on a 5th grade level, but are also appropriate for 4th grade and 6th grade. Biographies on George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin are included. The articles touch on their backgrounds as well as famous quotes, the constitution, freedom, religion, and democracy. How did the Founding Fathers die? That is a common question that is answered in the biographies as well as many other Founding Fathers of America facts. Each packet includes a balanced and accurate article, reading comprehension activities, answer keys and graphic organizer which adheres to several core curriculum standards in grade 4, grade 5 and grade 6. The question pages are QR code enabled. Any device with a camera and a QR app can use the codes for instant feedback. Also included are full answer keys.
.

Pages in the packet can be printed either in color or grayscale with good results. These activities are effective as a homeschool or summer reading resource.

Reviews

This is such a great resource! It is one of the exact subjects we need to study this year (I'm a homeschooling mom to a fourth-grader)--the founding fathers. I love the Character Trait map and list. Such a clever idea. Thank you for thinking of that!

I used your product to help teach about the Founding Fathers and we practice paraphrasing the information. They enjoyed answering the questions and I feel my students really know these famous men! Thanks so much!

Love these! I love these as they link Reading, Writing AND Social Studies. Great resource!
