This is a craftivity that is related to the Open Court story found in U5W4 "Thomas Jefferson Grows a Nation". You will be receiving directions on how to create a Thomas Jefferson Biography Paper Chain. This paper chain will have 4 "Thomas Jefferson" templates. The directions will provide your students with 4 different opportunities to compare and contrast, infer, & respond to various comprehension questions based upon the text.
I recently completed this activity with my students, and they LOVED it! I have included 2 pictures of paper chain examples my students completed while doing a Civil War Unit. These Paper Chains will be very similar except the art work will require students to use details specific to Thomas Jefferson. As you can see, they are adorable! I know your students will enjoy this activity as well. I believe this could be an excellent activity to utilize in a literacy center stocked with passages and books related to Thomas Jefferson & his impact on America. It could also be used as an opportunity to compare and contrast Thomas Jefferson with other Revolutionary men. It would only require you to change the information that is written on each template. This craftivity is also include in a larger bundle including lesson plans, spelling, vocabulary, a note-taking organizer, phonics activities, and comprehension activities related to this story. Thanks for considering my projects!
