This is the very first lesson I created for my ESOL class that centered around US History. I have included in this bundle all PowerPoints, graphic organizers, videos, lesson plans, links to additional resources, and culminating quizzes used during this 3 week unit. This unit works best with National Geographic's Road to Revolution Readers but you can supplement with nearly any early literacy books about the subjects covered in this bundle. Subjects include: The 13 Colonies; Declaration of Independence; Founding Fathers; and the Revolutionary War.
Activities include: auditory and visual stimulation through the use of sound effects and adjectives; virtual tours of historic locations and homes; graphic organizers for think-pair-share; suggested guided reading materials; ESOL level vocabulary; lesson extensions; and more.
