Ask and Answer Questions About Women’s Rights

Whether it is Women’s History month, or any other month of the year, it is never a bad time to work on your students’ reading comprehension skills. We know how tough it is to fit your Social Studies curriculum into the school day, so we have put together some differentiated pieces to help you blend Reading and Social Studies into the same segment!

Women’s Rights Movement Reading Worksheet

In this Women’s Rights resource is a nonfiction reading passage based on general information about the women’s suffrage movement,  women’s rights, and the 19th amendment. It is written for students in grades 3-5. We have included two differentiated passages to help you better align your content to your students’ reading levels. The passages included are

  • Passage 1 – Grade Level – Lexile is 700-800
  • Passage 2 – Below Grade Level – Lexile is 610

Integrate social studies content with your reading comprehension instruction and add rigor to the lesson with a women’s suffrage lesson during your reading block.. This resource is perfect for a Women’s rights unit introduction or a quick review of concepts at the end of a unit.
