This is a one lesson download from Reading Through History that contains a two page biography of the great American athlete Jim Thorpe. The biography documents the life and achievements of the man who is considered by many to be the greatest athlete to ever live. The biography is accompanied by three pages of student activities to gauge reading comprehension. The questions include multiple choice, vocabulary activities, guided reading, student summaries, and a student response essay question.
*My middle school students typically complete the work in about 30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
This lesson is part of our Oklahoma history teacher's resource manual II. For more information on the workbook, click here: 2nd 9 Weeks Resource Manual
