Two great activities that would span 5 lessons on US founding father, Benjamin Franklin.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about Black History Month, the civil rights movement or researching sports people.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
