This is a custom created unit designed to help you integrate social studies in your reading and writing blocks. The 7 reading passages are formatted in two different ways. They are formatted in the standard format and an interactive note-taking format. You decide what you need for your students!
The passages are followed with questions that are text based. Before reading, students must number their paragraphs and when answering questions, must give the paragraph number where they found the answer. I have also included a 13 question final assessment for the unit, and a writing activity.
Also included are instructions to teach painless compare/contrast paragraphs.
Clipart is also included in this unit! I have included the Supreme Court with 3 arrows, the Capitol building with 3 arrows, the White House with 3 arrows, a tree to represent the branches of government, boy in toga, ballot, Supreme Court, Parthenon, and a laurel wreath. All clipart is in color and black and white in 300 dpi.
