This packet of printables contains everything you need to teach a week long lesson on Louis Braille.
Kick off the week with a KWL chart on Louis Braille. Students will read a two page biography and answer questions on Louis’ life. They will put together a timeline of important events in his life, complete a Venn diagram, and a graphic organizer. To help students gain a better understanding of the man himself they need to understand the times and places that Louis Braille lived in. Therefore there are mini geography and history lessons within this lesson. There are maps and timelines of French history and questions to help them figure out what was going on in France at the time. There are even 12 colorful posters of Louis Braille, the rulers of France, and other significant historical events in this packet. Students get to try a Braille decoding activity, complete a review and word search, and they receive a study guide for their assessment. There is a two page assessment that can be given at the end of this unit. The packet also contains a full answer key set.
Enjoy your adventure with Louis Braille!
