PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit contains 4 one-page passages. Each passage focuses on a Spanish conquistador. The Lexile levels range from 950 to 1030. Each passage correlates with a short comprehension question page. I created this unit for use with 5th grade when I was struggling to find information focusing on the Spanish explorers. I wanted to include enough information to be comprehensive, but I didn't want to drown them in unnecessary details either. The passages are written about Juan Ponce de Leon, Hernando De Soto, Hernando Cortes, and Francisco Vazquez de Coronado. These are the four Conquistadors mentioned in the Harcourt 5th grade Social Studies text in the Explorers unit. I intended for these passages to be used in place of our morning work when we work on a close reading passage. The questions focus around making inferences from the text by combining evidence with opinion or prior knowledge.

The preview file contains the Table of Contents, the Juan Ponce de Leon passage, and the corresponding comprehension page. Each passage and comprehension page contain the same layout except that the comprehension page for Hernando De Soto contains a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast De Soto with Ponce de Leon.

Please feel free to leave feedback. I hope you find this helpful and informative! Thank you so much for your purchase from Mama With 6!
