Read and learn about Benjamin Franklin with an informational reader and activity booklet.

What Did Benjamin Franklin Do?

Benjamin Franklin was one of the most important founding fathers in American history. He played an instrumental role in the creation of our nation, so it’s important that we teach our children about him and his impact on American history. This mini-book is an easy way to do just that!

The book has been designed as a printable mini-book for you to print front-to-back, cut in half, and assemble into a half-size booklet.

It can then be used as a center or guided reading activity for your students. It includes biographical text about Benjamin Franklin, comprehension opportunities and a comprehension check at the end of the book.
