Little Log Cottage School

Comparing and Contrasting First and Second Hand Accounts of the Same Event


This packet includes visual aides, activities, writing projects, and more to practice comparing and contrasting first and second hand accounts of the same event.

This packet includes:
anchor posters
sorting activity cards
first and second hand reading passages
journal activity
biography activity
double bubble map

This is one of those resources I created to use with reading, social studies,and reading! Not only will kids practice reading standard RI.4.6 but also social studies standards.

We’ve just finished up reading and writing about Indigenous Settlements and are now ready to learn about other Native American tribes. I tied information from the Cherokee into this packet so we can do 2 skills at once.

I began by using the anchor posters to define first and second hand accounts before completing the activities. The kids create their own anchor posters in their reading journals. They will use their journals to help them work through the activities in the packet.
