Battle of the Alamo Thinktivity™ Reading Comprehension

The Battle of the Alamo Thinktivity™ is an engaging reading comprehension activity in which students “earn” robot parts as they complete each task. The reading passage provides a unique way to get students excited about learning about the Alamo. Students will LOVE every minute of this! A winning combination of nonfiction text, interactive components, and engaging activities.

 

Topics: Davy Crockett, Battle of the Alamo, Sam Houston, Santa Anna, Stephen Austin, missionaries, Texas

Students will need to read the passage multiple times searching for evidence for each of the 6 tasks. They will work individually (or in pairs) to color and build their robot. As students complete each task, they will earn a robot “part” to assemble at the end.

 

This Thinktivity™ can be used for individual work, partner activities, anticipatory sets, unit review, sub plans, station rotations, extension activities, early-finishers, or just for fun the day before break. How you choose to set it up in your classroom is up to you. You may choose to do one task per day or complete them all in a few class periods.
