Here's a great reading comprehension packet that gives a great overview from the American Revolution to the Constitution era. It includes comprehension and critical thinking questions. These can be used as classwork or homework reading exercises. The five topics include: Declaration of Independence, Revolution highlights, Articles of Confederation, Constitution and Founding forefathers. This packet also includes an answer sheet, main idea and supporting details sheet and a sheet for students to take organized notes. (FYI... the preview says there are 6 passages, but actually there's only 5)
