PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This integrated Social Studies and Language Arts Pack is perfect for introducing the explorers. It is based on the book Encounter by Jane Yolen. It gives a new perspective on Christopher Columbus, from the viewpoint of the Native Americans. If you also teach Native Americans, it’s a great tie in to that unit.

I used this text as my mentor text for several different reading skill lessons. Here are a few:

*Inferencing
*Summarizing
*Main Idea and Details
*Compare and Contrast of 2 different viewpoints of the same event
*Figurative Language
*Cause and Effect

Also included:
*Teacher ideas- how I used the book for each lesson
*Comprehension Quiz
*Sentence and Fragment Practice Sheet
*Writing Prompt for students to write a diary entry from the viewpoint of the Natives or Columbus.

Whether you are teaching about Native Americans, Christopher Columbus, or any other explorers, this fantastic book will meet the needs of your students! If you haven't read this book, you need to check it out! It's one of my and my students' favorites!
