Leveled Booklets and Reading Passages about Thomas Edison for Middle School Reading Comprehension Assessment or Science and Social Studies Content.
Thomas Edison was one of the greatest inventors of the modern era. His work with the telegraph, electricity, and the phonograph literally set the stage for the telephone, motion pictures, and even the Internet.
This packet includes two printable booklets and reading passages concerning Thomas Edison and how his hard work and determination ensured his success. The passage not only teaches about Edison's life, but also about his values.
The passages/booklets come in two different reading levels. One for 7th grade and one for 9th grade. You should be able to comfortably include these passages into any middle school and above classroom.
Edison Booklet 1100 Lexile, 9th grade reading level
Edison Booklet 800 Lexile, 7th grade reading level
Contents of both booklets in non-booklet form.
Quick assessment (can be used with either book or passage)
Written response assessment (can be used with either book or passage)
The booklets are designed to be printed out and then made into half page sized booklets by printing them to two-sided paper using your copier. They include pictures of Edison and some of his inventions.
This packet would be great for ELA or Science classes as either an intro to Thomas Edison, Invention, Modern Communications, or for reading comprehension practice or assessment.
