⭐THIS UNIT IS PART OF A FAMOUS PEOPLE BUNDLE:
Famous People Bundle
This unit includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including:
✔Informational articles his life
✔Meet George Washington Carver
✔Fact or Fiction Activity
✔Two Quotes with questions
✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps
✔Plus a 5-Page Flip Book
There are three main activities:
Introduce the six vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use it as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.
Next, have students read the informational articles and character studies where they will meet George Washington Carver and learn all about his life. It starts with him as a young boy, and it continues to show his complete life story. The articles are written with questions and scenes for students to connect and color. There’s also custom-created Carver organizers to use for review or further research.
There are two Carver quote pages with questions as well as fact or fiction activity so students can show what they know. Have students complete the Mystery Flaps and the 5 page Flip Book all about George Washington Carver. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet.
Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
