This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 4 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing several ELA standards using an informational text on Native Americans. Your students will use close reading comprehension techniques, creation of a comparing design, writing a summary and playing a Bingo review game.

  • Segment 1: students will take a literal interpretation of informational text to evaluation and synthesizing.
  • Segment 2: students will complete a graphic organizer to compare and contrast the lives of Native Americans from the past with Native Americans of present day.
  • Segment 3: students will create and use four headings to write a summary of the informational text.
  • Segment 4: students will show understanding of the informational text on Native Americans through a “Bingo” review game.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
