Literacy and social studies can be combined in order to make sure to fit it all in!
This pack of five reading passages based on maps is a great way to integrate social studies and reading in your busy classroom.
Each passage is included in a large full-sheet format as well as a half page format that is perfect for including in a journal.
Additionally, each passage is followed by a set of open-ended questions, but these questions are only the beginning of how you can use this pack.
I have used these passages in small group guided reading, as close reading selections, whole group, or as an anticipatory set to introduce a new concept.
