Freebie! Let's Talk Turkey!
Okay, I love this freebie! Rebecca Bettis has done an amazing job bringing some history to life for students. It is a reading comprehension packet for kids about 3rd to 5th grade, but the short story would work for 6th graders too :).
Bettis writes about the fact that Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national symbol (instead of the bald eagle). She even uses an excerpt from an original Benjamin Franklin letter (hello, introduction to primary documents).
This is so great, I can't believe it is free!
