Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, His Life and Times is a biographical informational reading and writing unit for upper elementary students. It can be equally utilized in an ELA, Music, or Social Studies class.
The two texts are chronological:
Part 1 is titled “Who is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?” and
Part 2 “Mozart the Composer”.
Each text has:
--- a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion);
--- a page of vocabulary and language use work and a short creative writing assignment;
--- a one-page cloze activity using the twelve vocabulary words from Parts 1 and 2 (introduced in the work sheet for each part) and
--- a “words within words” puzzle in which students find words within the name “Wolfgang Amadeus”. The latter includes a couple of student challenges.
All of the student work pages and the puzzle have answer keys.
