PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These reading passages are a great way to add social studies into your language arts block and vice versa. Students will love reading about different games that pilgrim children played. I spend a lot of time researching to make sure I had the most interesting facts possible!

Use them as simple language arts and social studies assignments, or you can use them as a springboard for a research assignment. Use the optional research template provided, and have students choose a game that they learned about in the reading. Have them learn the rules of the game and even teach it to the class.

NOTE: This product is newly revised and has had a complete and total makeover! It can be found in the Games Pilgrims Play Bundle (Check to see if you already own it!)
