PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thomas Edison, His Life and Times is an informational reading and writing unit for upper elementary students. Each of the two texts can be used alone (but in sequence): they could be assigned as the teacher wishes: in class over a couple of days or more, as homework, as independent projects, etc.

The two texts are chronological; Part 1 is titled “Young Thomas Edison” and Part 2 “Thomas Edison, Inventor”.

Each text has a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) as well as a page of vocabulary and language use work and a short creative writing assignment.

There is a one-page cloze activity using the twelve vocabulary words from Parts 1 and 2 (introduced in the work sheet for each part).

A short quiz that consists of six multiple-choice questions and one short answer question completes the resource.
