Supports Common Core for 4th and 5th grade Reading Informational Text and Language.
When you use this Sacajawea Biography unit, not only will your students be practicing comprehension strategies, locating information, and learning vocabulary, they will also be learning about Sacajawea and her courageous trek across the Louisiana Territory with the Corps of Discovery.
This biography study, based on the book Sacagawea, Crossing the Continent with Lewis and Clark, includes:
*4th and 5th grade common core standards printable and "I can..." statement printables for display.
*Six foldable reading response organizers which include vocabulary, literal and inferential comprehension questions, and about the text questions.
*Answer key for all six reading response organizers
*Vocabulary assessment with answer key (CCSS)
*End of biography short essay assessment (CCSS)
Students will be locating information from text features, graphic features, and organizational features of informational text.
I have used this biography study in my own classroom, in conjunction with my Lewis and Clark biography study, and my students enjoy learning about this time in our history and comparing the two biographies. My class has great discussions about the difficulties and challenges The Corps of Discovery faced and the part Sacajawea played in the success of the expedition.
