One of the two major space shuttle disasters, “The Columbia Disaster”, is featured in this cross-curricular and integrated history and reading packet with material for geography and science as well. This no prep lesson is great for sub plans or bell ringers and is just one example of a new series, called History Minutes.
This includes the story of the Columbia Disaster. It’s the space shuttle that flew up to space and completed a mission but because of foam that hit the wing during take-off, the space shuttle broke apart and was destroyed over the skies of Texas, killing all 7 aboard. Using this reading students can complete a close note reading lesson with five parts. There are guided notes for those students who need more structure, a brief geography lesson on the United States, a science lesson on what it takes to get into orbit, and “Smart Scribbles” – a note taking format that allows students to doodle as they take notes. Answer keys are also included.
If you would like to take a glimpse at a similar resource, a free portion of “Machu Picchu” is avaliable at the following link.
We hope you’ll enjoy it.
