PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is 4th grade Common Core ELA Module 2a Unit 2 Lessons 1-15

I created these worksheets to be more kid friendly since I am not a big fan of the engageny common core worksheets. The margins are set to narrow. :-) The same rubric can be used for the mid-unit as the final assessment.


In the second unit, students further develop their ability to comprehend informational text by hearing and reading a variety of nonfiction sources about roles people played in a colonial settlement (e.g., blacksmith, wheelwright, printer, and cooper) and how necessary their interdependence was for survival. To build
students’ background knowledge, the class will work together to study the wheelwright, a colonial tradesperson. They will then work in research expert groups as they become experts in one specific colonial trade. Students will select from shoemaker, cooper, blacksmith, builder/carpenter, and printer. Students will study a variety of informational texts and also will learn the importance of citing sources by keeping a list of the key sources they used during
their research. With an emphasis on making inferences, summarizing informational text, and basic research (note-taking, pulling together information from a variety of texts, and sorting information into research categories), students synthesize information from multiple sources. This research will serve as the
foundation for their culminating performance task (in Unit 3).
