    Two great activities that would span 5 lessons on former US President and founding father, Thomas Jefferson. Perfect for students in 5th grade or 6th grade learning about famous presidents and U.S. History.

    NO PREP is needed!

    Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.

    Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about influential US Presidents or the birth of the United States.

    Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
