Have your students take a step back in time to learn all about schools long ago! This resource will encourage students to ask and answer questions, compare and contrast, use their schema, and recognize that change occurs over time.
In this packet, you will find:
Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing schools long ago VS today ((these real life photographs will capture the attention of even your most reluctant students!).
Part 2: School Then and Now Article - These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.
Part 3: Differentiated School Then and Now Mini-Books - These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction. There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale.
Part 4: Graphic Organizers Galore - These graphic organizers, vocabulary books, and independent practice sheets can be used however you wish! I tried to offer you many different options to help meet the needs of your diverse group.
In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous web resources and books!
