Discussion Questions for American Studies Supplemental Reading Set Fifth Grade
These discussion questions are for oral discussion of the books in the Memoria Press Fifth Grade American/Modern Studies Supplemental Reading Set. The idea behind these novels and biographies is to introduce students to important characters and events in American history through stories. Students should be able to read these books independently. The discussion questions will aid the teacher in talking with the students about what they have read. Our intention is that these books will be read and enjoyed by young students beginning their journey through American history.
Historical living books captivate children and inspire a life-long love of history through immersion learning. Take this love of history deeper by instituting a discussion time. Created as a supplement to the Memoria Press grade level packages, these discussion guides coordinate with the 3rd and 4th grade Modern American History Supplemental books. Books are selected with independent reading at grade level in mind. At the conclusion of the chapter or section, parents/teachers will ask 2-5 content-related questions from this book. Since this is designed as discussion resource, answers are found directly below the question. Users of other curricula may find the quality book lists and discussion questions versatile to introduce in their daily schedule. This resource is also valuable if you as parent are personally not able to read all the books but wish to encourage independent reading and be assured that your children understand their reading.
