This is a bundle of lesson plans and activities that correlate with Houghton Mifflin Social Studies series for 5th grade. In this bundle you will receive 2 weeks of lesson plans ready to cut out and glue in your plan book, four note catchers, two non-fiction passages specific to TN standards with note-catchers and a set of text dependent questions, 2 lesson activity sheets related to the text from the series, a study guide, and a test. You will also be receiving several links in the lesson plans. These include: an I-pad activity, photo analysis activity, power points, and directions to create sod houses in your classroom as a culminating activity, Two writing activities are also included. One is a narrative based upon the photo stimulus link and another is a point of view piece based upon a passage written by Crazy Horse. Both of these writing activities have been modeled after the new Social Studies writing activity that students are required to complete.
Overall, this is a great collection of lessons and activities that will keep your students engaged and assess a variety of reading and language arts skills while learning social studies standards at the same time! Thank you for considering my products.
