This lesson focuses on students reading and drawing conclusions about how drinking water was obtained by regular citizens in mid-19th century London. Students should notice that the text indicates that the way people used to get their drinking water is very different from how we get our drinking water now. Students will be able to decipher this by looking closely at the vocabulary used in the text. The vocabulary is not explained or defined in the blog and students must use inferences to determine how the drinking water was obtained. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text. Students should number the paragraphs.
