This is a nonfiction passage created to follow the new Social Studies standards for Tennessee. This passage teaches standard 5.32. The passage teaches about the Buffalo Soldiers and specifically about George Jordan from Tennessee. I have created a passage, an organizer to use while students complete a close read, and text dependent questions. A final activity will ask students to create a "trading card" featuring George Jordan. The trading card will ask students to draw a picture of Sergeant Jordan, write his occupation, notable accomplishments, locate the states of his retirement, heroic battles, and the state of his origin. Finally, students will be asked to create a slogan that would describe George Jordan.

After completing this lesson your students should have no problem remembering the important of the Buffalo Soldiers or George Jordan.

Please be on the lookout for other informational passages related to Tennessee's new Social Studies Standards.

I would like to thank Krista Wallden of Creative Clips for the use of her A-MAZING clip art in this product!

This is a great way to teach students one of the new Tennessee standards and incorporate the new common core reading and writing strategies as well! I hope you will consider purchasing this for your students. Thank you!
