I love teaching about the American Revolution, and Lynne Cheney's book, When Washington Crossed the Delaware, is an awesome mentor text! I have created a variety of Common Core aligned literacy activities to accompany our study of this text. When Washington Crossed the Delaware is perfect for Social Studies and Language Arts. There are resources to use while reading the text and after reading the text.

Included in this unit:
*vocabulary chart
*making inferences
*determining cause and effect
*identifying and supporting character traits with text evidence
*main idea and supporting details
*close reading activities
*writing prompts with text dependent questions
*critical thinking writing activities (point of view, author's craft and persuasive writing)
*vocabulary and comprehension assessment
*answer keys
*graphic organizers as well as interactive notebook flip books

These activities are perfect for integrating Social Studies into Language Arts! I will read the book during Social Studies, and then use the activities in Language Arts to guide student learning. This unit spans one to two weeks.
