Product Description

Thomas Jefferson

“Thomas Jefferson” is a Social Studies lesson that focuses on the contributions of America’s 3rd president. Students do a close read on an original informational text. Details are examined and understood by annotating the text and creating a 3D Graphic Organizer (foldable). A printable is included for students to categorize details about Thomas Jefferson as facts or opinions. Answer keys are included with the lesson.

Suggestions for how to use the activities in this lesson with an interactive notebook are also included. The 3D graphic organizer will fit within the pages of a standard composition notebook. However, the lesson is designed so that it can also be used without such notebooks.

I completed this lesson with my students in 2 days. Ideas are included on how you might structure the lesson to suit your schedule.
