Children in History Worksheets
This section contains resources for social studies, American history, English, and reading teachers, although others may find it useful as well. The primary content is composed of biographical reading comprehensions (complete with cloze and other fun activities) of numerous well-known (and some lesser known) children throughout history, divided into pre and post 1860. While the reading comprehensions are primarily aimed at the middle grades (4-7), there are resources for younger learners, too, including leveled books and more than a dozen book units. If you don't know exactly what you want, have edHelper make you a Daily Children in History Activity Lesson Plan Book!
