Product Description
This small bundle includes my two biographical resources about Terry Fox: each one includes a two-part text about the life of this Canadian icon. There are several activities accompanying each one. By buying the bundle you save some money and have differentiated passages and activities for your students. Great to use if you are teaching ELD or ESL!

The Grades 5/6 level resource includes:
--- 2-one page reading texts of over 500 words detailing Terry’s life and his legacy.
Two activities designed for each of the texts and a third activity that requires both texts be read.
Activities 1 and 2 – “Memory Challenge”: putting details back in order and supplying missing words or phrases in Part 1; Synonym Search - students replace words and phrases from Part 1 with their own;
Activities 3 and 4 – “IMHO” – students are asked to express their opinions on details in Part 2; students compare how Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope might be handled by today's media to how it was covered in 1980;
Activity 5 (for both texts) – “Fast Facts” – students choose what they believe are the most important facts in both texts and explain why;

Other activities:
A creative writing assignment in which students write a diary entry that Terry might have written;
“Remembering Terry” – students design their own interview questions and then interview and record the answers of someone who remembers Terry’s Marathon of Hope;
"Terry Fox in Words" - students brainstorm for adjectives that begin with the first letters of Terry's name and write sentences about him using those adjectives; and
“Into the Wind: Terry’s Story” – 3 pp of questions based on an online video about Terry Fox’s life.

Answer keys are included.

The Grade 7/8 resource includes a very similar 2 part biography, but written at a higher reading level.

Activities included:
An activity designed for each of the texts and a third activity that requires both texts be read.
Activity 1 – “Memory Challenge”: putting details back in order and supplying missing words or phrases in Part 1;
Activity 2 – “IMHO” – students are asked to express their opinions on details in Part 2;
Activity 3 – “Fast Facts” – students choose what they believe are the most important facts in both texts and explain why;

Other activities (not related to the texts):

“Remembering Terry” – students design their own interview questions and then interview and record the answers of someone who remembers Terry’s Marathon of Hope;
