Teaching the War of 1812? Struggling to Find Resources?

You are not alone. After a quick poll, all of the upper elementary Teach Starter team members agree that U.S. History is one of the hardest subjects to teach due to limited resources. Teachers struggle with finding them, and when they are provided by the district, it’s often found that upper elementary Social Studies texts aren’t written at an appropriate readability level.

That’s where we come in! We’ve put together a string of resources to help you plan your lessons when covering the events and outcomes of the War of 1812. This printable mini-book is the perfect tool for an introductory reading activity or as a whole-group shared reading opportunity. This book comes in handy in the classroom because it is written in kid-friendly language and provides multiple opportunities for students to summarize their understanding through multiple choice, written answer, and constructed response questions.

Paper-Saving Printable Books for 4th and 5th Graders

This mini-book is formatted to save paper use in the classroom. Each booklet is designed to be printed two-sided and flipped on the long edge. This way, the pages line up like a normal book would, using half the paper!
