Are you looking for a way to integrate your social studies standards into your reading block? If so, this download is perfect for you!!
This download contains...
-15 leveled biographies of famous North Americans (as listed in TN Social Studies standards)
--George Washington Carver
-Vocabulary cards for each text
-Leveled questions for each text
-4 "note-taker" graphic organizers
You could use these leveled readers in small group or whole group instruction, as resources for your students for research projects, to teach biographies, to compare/contrast historical figures... the possibilities are endless! I included the note-taker pages so that each of my guided reading groups can "present" their findings to the class after they've learned about their historical figure, and the other students can take notes.
Specifically covers Tennessee Social Studies Standards 3.16, 3.17
Coming soon... I will be creating similar units for the rest of the continents!
Thanks for downloading, and please rate and add comments to help me improve this and future downloads! Happy teaching :)
