PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson named “The Spectacular Grand Canyon” teaches about one of the great natural wonders of the world and how it was carved out by The Colorado River far below it. In the first three pages there is information about what and where the canyon is, how big it is, how it was formed, and different ways people view and explore it. I think your students will be particularly interested in the description of the skywalk and my two photographs of it. There is also a panoramic photo of the Grand Canyon and a drawing of people going down to see it by riding mules. All the pictures are in color even though the one came out black-and-white on my thumbnail tiff.
The next four pages, which I think is the best part, are fifteen multiple choice questions, in which students choose from four answers each. The reading comprehension skills covered
in the questions include: determining main ideas, locating details, drawing conclusions, and making inferences. The vocabulary words taught and tested are: canyon, eroded, fossils, geologists, and daunting. These reading skills presented will most likely enhance your students’ performance on standardized tests.
An answer key is included. The lesson is on a word document that you can easily print off and edit if you desire. Overall, it is an effective lesson for Teaching Reading Skills or for Teaching Reading in the Content Area of Social Studies.
