This informational text includes visuals and introduces Jefferson Davis. It clearly lists which states were Confederate States.
It has a practice worksheet attached that requires the student to copy the names of the Confederate States. For students with more severe disabilities, another student can write the names of the states in highlighter for the student with special needs to trace.
The worksheets we would read aloud to the kids individually. I would put two dots on either side of where I wanted them to highlight, and they would highlight between the two dots. Then we would read the questions allowed to the student and they would point to or circle their answer.
We would often reread the information as class warm ups, print out extra copies and cut out the pictures of the people, laminate them and play matching games matching the pictures to the names of the people. You can also enlarge the information, put it in sheet protectors, and have the students trace the information with wipe off markers if they are unable to write independently.
