Day 5: "Ancient Skeleton in Mexico Sheds Light on Kennewick Man"

This culminating writing task requires students to synthesize information from both chapters in order to explain the main idea of the text. Students can use notes from the previous days to help them organize and answer this question. 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. Graphic organizers for writing, both blank and some scaffolded with added information for special education and ELL students.
