This is a three section unit covering the life and achievements of three of America's greatest African American athletes. The unit contains 18 pages of student activities that involve: guided reading materials, constructed response paragraphs, true and false questions, vocabulary activities, and multiple choice quizzes to gauge reading comprehension. Every reading topic also includes questions geared toward the 4th and 5th grade Common Core literature and reading standards. Objectives include Key Ideas, Range of Reading, Key Ideas and Details, Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity, Writing, and Fluency. The packet includes everything a social studies or reading teacher would need to cover three days worth of a class. The materials are written at a slightly more difficult level than our fall activities in order to continue challenging the students.
This unit is available as part of our African American History Volume I bundle, which is available here: African American History Volume I
