Finding aligned, grade level, reading passages is difficult. I have written a one-page synopsis of the Battles of Lexington and Concord to use in the classroom. The activities include: guided reading questions to increase comprehension, a poster activity for ELLs and Visual learners, and an essay with one higher-order thinking prompt for advanced students.

Close Reading Strategies:

Using this passage students can analyze and interact with the text. Practice Summarization and Note-Taking, and content mastery. The passage is written at an 8th grade level and should be easily understood by all students in the classroom.

Centers and Stations:

In order to supplement other materials used in class this resource can be used as a station. Either have students read the passage and answer questions, make a poster or outline an essay. Regardless how you use the resource it will provide enough material for a 10-15 minute rotation station.

You can assign the poster activity for your students to make their own word walls in your classroom. Having students create their own word walls is a research-proven vocabulary and concept building tool that increases student engagement and retention of material.


Having students read the passage at home and complete the activities will reinforce the concepts that you have taught in class. This resource is an print and go homework assignment.
