This remote learning bundle has five online activities that would span eleven lessons about the new president and vice president of the United States, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The resources are perfect for Distance Learning in Year 3 or Year 4, and are ideal for students learning about U.S. History.
Firstly, there is a Joe Biden Reading Comprehension Activity & a Kamala Harris Reading Comprehension Activity. These informational texts come with comprehension and grammar questions followed by extension tasks. These resources are Google Forms activities and are ideal for distance learning.
Secondly, there is a Joe Biden Biography Writing Unit & a Kamala Harris Biography Writing Unit. These units have been split into four separate lessons each, which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes. The Google Slides activities are ideal for distance learning. The first lessons are interactive and involve students reading facts, and then sorting and ordering these facts into paragraphs. In the second lessons the children need to use these facts to type four paragraphs. Then, in the third lessons they need to choose the most important facts and include these in an introduction; after this they need to answer several questions before typing up their conclusions. In the final lessons your class will need to check their draft paragraphs before typing up their work on to the templates provided.
Finally, there is a great digital research and sorting activity that is perfect for introducing students to all of the Presidents of the United States throughout history, from the very first - George Washington, to the present president, Joe Biden. Great for class work, distance learning or home schooling. There are 46 posters or task cards featuring all of the U.S. Presidents. The research and sorting activity is differentiated into two levels: with dates and without dates. Lower level students can sort the events using the dates, whilst higher level students can research the dates online before sorting the timeline.
These activities are all online resources that use Google Forms and Google Slides, they are linked to your Google Drive. They can be completed by students online using tablets, phones or computers. The resources also come in a PDF format, which can be printed.
