Description

Perfect for grades 3 – 6

Were you there? Or did someone tell you? Having students ask the author these questions will help them identify firsthand and secondhand accounts. When students research topics and events, they must understand the different materials available, as well the features of each. Additionally, we want students to read diverse viewpoints so they can have a better understanding of the topic or event they are studying.

The goal of this resource is to help students compare and contrast firsthand and secondhand accounts. As students progress through this resource, the text and questions increase in complexity. This resource will help your students do the following:

  • Identify firsthand and secondhand accounts
  • Analyze the features of a firsthand and secondhand account
  • Compare and contrast firsthand and secondhand accounts
  • Analyze the limitations of the authors in firsthand and secondhand accounts
  • Analyze the advantages of the authors in firsthand and secondhand accounts
  • Determine which source(s) would best assist them with a research task

This resource includes everything you will need to practice firsthand and secondhand accounts with your students! I’ve included THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EACH PASSAGE for you to easily differentiate in your classroom!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the digital version, you have the option to go 100% paperless.
