Description

Printable PDF and digital Google Slides™ versions included for blended learning. Standards often require student exposure to a wide variety of genres. This resource fills critical gaps in 4th grade, 5th grade, 6th grade curriculum. Includes answer keys and graphic organizers.

--- RESOURCE DETAILS ---

You are covered with this resource. It includes a PDF printable version as well as a Google Slides™ digital version for distancing learning. Includes ten wonderful and diverse myths and legends including Native American, Canadian, and Greek mythology. Students engage in comprehension activities such as cause and effect, inferences, compare and contrast, problem-solving, drawing conclusions, determining story themes (morals), identifying important facts, using context clues, sequencing events, identifying important details, summarizing. The rich stories and questioning strategies help students improve important reading comprehension skills.

The articles are written on about a 5th grade reading levels. The comprehension activities range in difficulty from 4th grade to 6th grade. The activities are easily adapted. For example, a 4th grader might only be assigned the question activity to a story while a 6th grader might be assigned the questions and the more challenging graphic organizer. The activities are great for whole group, small group, individuals, centers, and homework applications. They are great for homeschool, tutoring, or summer reading applications. Pages in the packet can be printed either in color or grayscale with good results.

--- QUESTIONS AND TOPICS ADDRESSED ---

The myths, legends, and activities in this resource can be used as an assessment tool to test upper elementary students in grade 4, 5 or 6 on their comprehension skill levels. The exercises, problems, and activities on the printable worksheets adhere to common core standards in the U.S and other standards elsewhere. The myths and legends unit can be a great supplement to district and state curriculum requirements and are easily adaptable to existing lesson plans.
