After showing the class the DVD "Discovering Ardi" from the Discovery Channel, this comprehension assignment can be given as an RI.6.7 assignment for 6th grade. It can be used during a unit on ancient humans.
This is a guidebook used for 6th grade. You can use what you need and add what you want. It's a great starting place. You can hand this out at Back to School Night so parents know your policies. Recommended for first-year teachers.
