PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Columbus Day: A Close Read for 4th-6th Grade" is a close reading passage and questions designed to teach students about the national holiday Columbus Day, while also teaching reading comprehension and strategies. Students will learn a little about why we celebrate Columbus Day in America, and why Columbus is an important historical figure. The nature of close reading, as well as the passage and questions lend this activity to Standardized Test Practice as well. The reading passage is written on an end-of-the-year 5th grade Reading Level. This makes the passage ideal for 4th and 5th grade students, because the nature of the assignment leads them to read closely for a greater understanding of a more difficult text. Within the passage, Columbus Day is presented in a non-fiction format.

Feel free to download the preview to learn more!

Close reading is a strategy that is encouraged through Common Core, best completed with short passages such as the one provided here. The seven questions range from basic knowledge to inference.

This close read is included in my Close Reading Collection Bundle with 10 close reads, a great money saver!
