As early as 3rd and 4th grades, students should be diving in to American History. They also are needing to strengthen their ability to read and comprehend, with greater detail, content area text. This resource from My Teaching Library has been designed to not only teach students about the 16th president of the United States but to give students a chance to practice reading to comprehend informational text.
The first page of this resource is informational text. It is a 3 on the Automated Readability Index. It begins teaching about Lincoln’s his early life in Kentucky and progresses through his life touching on his family, his career as a lawyer, his presidency and finally his death by the hands of John Wilkes Booth.
After reading the text, the students have a reading comprehension worksheet, multiple choice, to test their understanding.
Next, there are two additional activities that can be used. One is a postcard writing activity and the other is a research activity.
