Do you know how Grandparents Day got started? Involve grandparents in this activity as your intermediate students read and discuss the history of Grandparents Day.
Included in this activity are vocabulary discussion cards and response questions related to a specific website.
Do you have iPads or other mobile devices in your classroom with a QR scanner? As an option to the activity, I have incorporated QR codes to integrate technology into the classroom.
What parts of this activity you use and how you use them are based on your teaching style, timeframe and grade level. I suggested 50 minutes, but it will depend on your approach. You may do this all in one class time or complete the vocabulary the day before.
ELA common core standards are included.
