Product Description
This is a 5 page Reading Comprehension lesson. There are 2 1/2 pages of informational text followed by 20 comprehension questions divided into 4 sections: 1) True and False 2) Sequence Events 3) Label Main Ideas and Details and 4) Multiple Choice. The comprehension skills tested in the 20 questions include: recognizing details, determining main ideas, making inferences, and identifying character traits. Although they are not tested, 10 vocabulary words presented at the top of the first page for clarification are: Native Americans, Sioux, monument, reservations, sculptor, sculpture, task, unfortunately, settlers, and nostril. The topic of this exciting reading lesson is the Chief Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota. My text explains why it was built and some of the history of the colossal project undertaken by sculptor, Korczak Ziolkowski and later continued by his family. It provides general statements about the significance of Chief Crazy Horse, but I did not go into details about his life. The lesson would probably work well with your Native Americans unit or with a famous landmarks unit. The patriotic relevance of the lesson should motivate your students to read the text and try to answer the questions correctly. It will engender much discussion. You also get photographs (public domain ones) of sculptor, Korczak with his wife, Chief Crazy Horse, the marble model of the monument, and photos of the extent the monument is completed thus far. The 6th page is the answer key. Being a word document this product is easy to print off and also edit if necessary. This lesson would work well with my other TPT product about Mount Rushmore since the monuments are located only 17 miles from one another in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
