This product offers an excellent way to give your students practice in reading for information. You place the 10 fact cards around the room and your students hunt,read,write,and learn all about the Erie Canal. I've included an optional writing assignment and a word find. This product can be used in a number of ways including for early finishers or students you feel need a challenge.
