This lesson relies on student research and information gathering in order for each of the standards to be met completely. The teacher may need to curate text passages specific to the topic in order to verify that correct information is being used.

While there are assessments included in the lesson through projects and supplemental activities, there are no assessments or lesson directives tied to the standard for comparing/contrasting texts.

I am looking forward to using this resource, and am a bit sad that I have to wait an entire year to do so! This is so well laid-out, clear, and ready for immediate implementation in the classroom. The related resource links (Nearpod, Kahoot, etc.) make this a well-rounded lesson with great supplemental materials in place. This is a super find because of its tie-in to many standards for K-5 learning.
