**CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW DOWNLOAD!!**
For this packet, I partnered with my mom who taught for 30 years. She was a super star in the classroom and History is her thing! WE had a blast creating this resource together!
These mini passages are focused on 12 key Historical
Events that students in 4th-6th grade need to know for
Social Students Content.
It’s important to expose students to these key events, and key words. By using these in conjunction with interactive notebooks during ELA or Social Studies, students will have a great time learning, creating, searching, labeling and following the clues and solving HISTORY’S MYSTERIES!
These passages are great for:
GUIDED READING | SMALL GROUP PULL OUT | INTRODUCTORY HISTORY LESSONS | REVIEW OF ELA SKILLS | REVIEW OF HISTORY CONTENT | FLUENCY | HOMEWORK | SO MUCH MORE!
