Product Description
The seat of the Unites States’ Federal Government is a location rich in geography and history. This ready-to-use activity package includes an informational text, reading strategy, reinforcement activity, and scaffolded writing task, which provide students in grades six through nine with a Five-Themes-of-Geography-driven overview of Washington, D.C. and its importance as a capital.

Students complete a “before, during, and after” reading strategy aiding them with independent note-taking and the connection of their notes to personal experiences-- a relevance-building exercise making content more meaningful than a collection of facts. A warm-up/reinforcement activity challenges students to apply their knowledge of the themes to anecdotes related to Washington, D.C.’s past and present. Finally, a summary activity involving “The Capitol Organizer” helps students compose a summative analysis of Washington, D.C. as a geographic, historic, and political city.

The reading and activities address the following Common Core Standards: RH6-8.2, RH6-8.4, RH6-8.7, RH6-8.10, WH6-8.4, and WH6-8.9.

PDF and modifiable Word versions are provided in the downloadable .zip archive.
