Satisfy the 3rd grade Georgia Performance standards byb pairing this chalkboard graphic organizer and quiz with text about Mary McLeod Bethune, one of America's greatest heroes.
The sections on this organizer include contributions, geographic understanding (where you live affects how you live), character traits, and everyday life/economic understanding. The graphic organizer makes it easier for students to determine importance of the text that they are reading.
Also included is a quiz that can be used to assess the standards.
I enlarge this on 9x12 construction paper so that my students will have adequate room for taking notes. They finish it off by coloring it.
