PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you ready to sing "My Old Kentucky Home" and begin studying the tradition that comes along with The Kentucky Derby? This unit is a great way to include The Derby while still using valuable instruction time to practice skills from The Common Core Standards!

Some topics in this unit include: text evidence, adjectives, shared research, opinion writing, speaking/listening skills, facts and opinions, alphabetical order, time, and money.

I love this unit because it focuses on facts of the Derby which enriches the minds of your students knowing they are reading true and relevant information.

I have included both a color copy and a printer friendly version of this pack! Enjoy!
