Marie's trip to Washington, D.C. has her thinking about her favorite orator. A nice tie-in for MLK Day (third Monday in January), this reading comprehension is followed by multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions.
Read an Annie Oakley tall tale (based on "Annie Got Her Gun!") and answer the multiple choice questions, then read a true story about Oakley with short answer comprehension questions. Sort fact from fiction in a review worksheet. Think and write about the values reflected in these tall tales. Finally: Write your own Annie Oakley tall tale. A great unit and a fun "women's history month" tie-in.
