PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The three passages in this unit (Marco Polo, Young Adventurer; Marco Polo and China; and Marco Polo Inspires the World) cover the adventurer's early life, his journey/arrival in China, and his time in jail in Venice and ultimate contribution to European knowledge of Asia (and the controversy surrounding it).

Each unit is accompanied by two pages of activities including vocabulary work and questions that test student reading for understanding, inference, and forming opinions.

The unit is designed primarily for Social Studies students in grades 4-7 (for strong grade 4s!) but could be used for informational text study in ELA. While the passages are continuous, each of the 3 texts can be used one at a time and assigned as the teacher wishes.

A full answer key is provided.
