The resource is a close reading activity about the life of Abraham Lincoln - the text looks at facts about his life and the events surrounding the Civil War, and concludes with comprehension and grammar questions. It also contains an extension activity for fast-finishing students. It is aimed at students between the ages of 9-12.
It is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.
The activity requires NO PREP; it has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
This activity is also part of the Influential US Presidents - 5th & 6th Grade Close Reading Activity Book- four activities for just $3.00. Activities look into the lives of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.
