Then, students use these timelines to create their own versions.  Here is the Rosa Parks version.

National Geographic books are filled with great information!

Students write their own reports after each book.

Each lesson is planned out for you… including a sentence study!

Reading comprehension and responding to literature at the same time!

Each biography offers the chance for students to learn and write about these historical individuals.

These activities are found in our Black History Month Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Unit.
