THEY'RE FREE THROUGH PRESIDENTS WEEK - and if you do download them, won't you kindly leave a feedback comment - Thank you!
We read Life at Home: Then and Now, as part of our ReadyGen Reading Program. I needed high-interest, differentiated activity sheets, so voila!
A home outline for kids to draw and label activities in a home, then and now--two pictures of each.
The advanced kids also wrote a sentence on the bottom: I prefer this or that, because... (and yes, one kid preferred using a washing board 'cause then he could sing while he washed--FUN!!)
One caveat: I always tell the other groups that they can take a house outline later, at centers time. They all want one.
- Group 1 used the house outline
- Group 2 drew a unique house, free-style, using the empty border sheet and inspired by the house outline
- Group 3 drew a smaller picture, and wrote extra on the lined paper provided
Hey, this also works for Presidents Day--you know, comparing life in colonial times and now. Hmmm...would kids actually prefer life back then?
