Product Description
Teach paired passage reading skills using poems about history! Each poem comes with an informational reading passage about the poem's historical background and questions comparing the texts to each other. You'll strengthen students' comprehension of poetry and informational text while incorporating social studies topics, including the American Revolution, the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, the Statue of Liberty, and the Louisiana Purchase.

The following poems are included, each with a paired passage and comparison worksheet:
- "Concord Hymn" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
- "O Captain! My Captain!" by Walt Whitman
- "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus
- "America the Beautiful" by Katherine Lee Bates

I hope your students enjoy learning fascinating facts about history while practicing the challenging skill of comparing paired passages! These reading activities are perfect as sub plans, test prep, or holidays like Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July.

Answer keys are included for all pages!
