Do you need activities and passages for teaching your students to analyze multiple accounts of the same event? This 4th and 5th grade reading resource includes several passages, activities, and other printables to supplement your instruction of multiple accounts.

Note: Analyzing multiple accounts of the same topic is not included in this resource. Click here to see the resource that specifically focuses on multiple accounts of the same topic.

***Important Note About the Texts

Due to copyrights on firsthand accounts, as well as the readability of such accounts, the firsthand accounts in this resource are fictionalized accounts.

The texts were written based on research and facts as if the writers had been present. They were written in a way to replicate firsthand accounts.

This was done in an effort to protect copyrights and follow laws, as well ensure that the texts were written at an appropriate reading level for 4th and 5th graders.

Multiple Accounts of the Same Event Activities Included:

  • Posters
  • Essential Questions
  • Rubrics/Checklists
  • Graphic Organizers
  • Three Sets of Practice Texts
  • Small Group Activity - Simple Sorts
  • Small Group Activity - Eight half-page task cards with paired texts

About the Multiple Accounts of the Same Event Passages:

As mentioned above, there are THREE sets of practice texts.

Set 1: Short Texts for Introduction - Use these practice texts for introducing and initially practicing the skill. Events are the Great Emu War, the rabbit incident with Jimmy Carter, Barcelona Olympic Torch Lighting, and the moon landing.

Set 2: More Practice - This set of passages includes longer passages with questions for each text and questions that require the students to use both texts.

Events Include:

1. Traveling West

2. Whale Carcass Washing Ashore

3. Transcontinental Railroad

4. Inauguration of Andrew Jackson

5. Atlantic Flight 8

6. Isaac Newton’s Discovery of Gravity

7. The Great Depression (both firsthand accounts)

8. The Titanic (both firsthand accounts)

Set 3: Lengthy Practice - This section includes three paired text sets. The texts included in this set are much longer than the other texts in this resource. Events include Lincoln's Assassination, Tubbs Fire, and Exxon Valdez Oil Spill.

Aligns with RI.5.6: Analyze multiple accounts of the same event, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent and RI.4.6 Compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event or topic; describe the differences in focus and the information provided.
