This package includes 9 interactive Chicago Fire interactive activities for lapbooks or interactive social studies notebooks. These activities can be implemented in whole group research lessons, with partners in social studies stations, or as an independent research project. This research unit will have students researching the causes and effects of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Students will reflect on their research to write an opinion essay on this event. I’ve included my guided opinion essay format pages plus a four paragraph graphic organizer for more independent writers. Final writing pages and opinion writing rubrics for grades 3 and 4 are also included!
