The Alamo - Heroes and Ghosts Reading & Worksheet
This resource features a great story on ghost sightings at the Alamo and the essential knowledge for students of what happened there between American settlers and Santa Anna's army prior to the Mexican-American War. The 2 page story is written at a level for high school students and is perfect to use for Halloween or a lesson on America's expansion.
Following the reading is a 2-page worksheet that includes 8 Common Core aligned questions to check students reading comprehension and critical thinking skills as well as a short answer in which students analyze the men's actions at the Alamo through a descriptive adjective.
