Students listen to or read the nonfiction paragraphs contained on these natural resource research cards to learn more about the items used by early American colonists. Many items contain primary source material, so they are a good tool for teaching the difference between primary and secondary sources. The cards can be used to teach CCSS ELA/History standards. A list of related standards is included for grades K-5.
The cards come in 3 reading levels--
A Microsoft Word (R) template is included so that students may make their own sets of cards to share with you and the class. You can add their items to your initial set, and "grow it" over the years.
