Engage your students and practice core ELA skills with these engaging, relevant tasks!
What is an Essential?
Essentials are short activities linked to basic reading, writing or language skills. In these activities, students practice these basic skills in authentic situations that feature topics they know and love. We include final questions that help students develop critical thinking skills.
Each Essential also includes a complete teacher guide, answer key and rubric.
In State Synopsis, students use their favorite or their own state to practice composing an informational/explanatory text. They write a state fact page after researching as a class. When they finish, they can repeat the activity for another state.
50 different editions or versions of this Essential are included for each state so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, an appropriate edition can be chosen to match the interests of the class, or the editions can be used at classroom stations. The editions for each state require students to work with different information linked to their selected edition.
NOTE: Get in touch if you would like to see other places covered by this Essential.
