I was hoping to start our Presidents Day unit last week. But a little combination called 100th Day and Valentine’s Day kind of stepped in and foiled my plans. No biggie though. We’ll be rolling with my it all this week and then working on American Symbols the week after that. I decided to go ahead and add a little Historical flair to our writing center for these next two weeks.
One of our Social Studies standards discusses how communities and lives were different in the past. Well in George and Abe’s day, people wrote with feathers and ink. I’m not quite cool teacher enough to bust out an ink well and let them have at it. But, add a pen and a little tape, and we’re halfway there. 😉
It still includes all the same fun activities from last year. But I’ve added a few more and revamped the overall look of things. You can now find all the great text passages and text based evidence questions that are included in my other Common Core Galore units.
Here is a peek at some of the updated pages.
