Benjamin Franklin Activity Pack

In the Benjamin Franklin Activity Pack (PDF) there are 3 main activities:
Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too. In addition, the vocabulary cards are a great hands-on challenging activity to get them thinking critically.

Reading:
Next, have students read the informational articles and character study where they will meet Benjamin Franklin and learn all about his life. It starts with him as a young boy and it continues through his lifetime. The articles are written in the form of booklet with questions and scenes for students to connect and color. Pages can be stapled at the top to make one large booklet that fits inside their interactive notebooks or be cut in half to create a mini-booklet. There’s a custom-created Lincoln organizer to use for review or further research.

Activities:
Have students complete the Benjamin Franklin Mystery Flaps and the 5 page Flip Up Booklet all about Benjamin Franklin. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
