This is a social studies activity that can be used with a lesson on Farming the Great Plains. It could also be paired with a piece of expository text on this same topic. Students are asked to read the statements found in each box. Then they should write if the statement is a fact or if it is fiction. Students MUST use text evidence to support their answer. Finally, students are asked to choose one statement of fact from the boxes and illustrate it on the back.
This is a great activity to help students retain the information from expository text because they must fully understand the text to be able to support their answers. My 5th graders always enjoy the opportunity to draw "with permission" as well!. I hope you enjoy this product! THANKS!
