Product Description
Who invented the light bulb, phonograph, and movie projector? Thomas Edison! Nat Geo’s “Thomas Edison” biography is a great STEM resource for teaching the CCSS for Informational Text 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and Writing Standards 2 and 3! With your copy of this read aloud and our Text-Dependent Questions you can easily model close reading and guide your students to the memorable facts and central ideas of this text.

After your class discussion, enhance your lesson with a close reading worksheet to help students review the facts, vocabulary, and concepts in the text. Page numbers are cited on the worksheet to help refer students back to the text for answers. Great for independent workers, pairs or groups! An answer key is included.

Finally, “Max”imize your read aloud time with one or both of the included writing activities! Our “paragraph builders” help students write both a narrative paragraph and an informational paragraph.
