Florida: Then & Now

Florida Then & Now is a set of reproducible readings, questions, and activity sheets for an upper elementary study of Florida History. The PDF files are designed to print and photocopy well. Most of the reading passages are two pages with alternating margins so they can be printed front and back and hole-punched. Each reading is accompanied by a page of "FCAT-like" questions. The teacher notes include suggested activities and a variety of reading strategies for use with the passages. Please note that the passages are written at students' instructional level, not their independent reading level. The questions should not be given to elementary students until after instruction on the vocabulary and content. If you are unable to view the PDF files, download the free Acrobat Reader from Adobe.
