George Washington’s Socks is an excellent choice for a literature study to support a social studies unit on the American Revolution. In the novel, a mysterious rowboat transports five kids to the Battle of Trenton, where they experience the American Revolution firsthand. The kids interact with Hessian soldiers, revolutionaries, and Washington himself.
I wrote a reading guide (teacher’s guide) that helps me keep the students accountable and make sure they are following the story. I wrote a half-sheet comprehension worksheet for each chapter, so the kids can answer enough questions to show they understand without belaboring the book. I hope you like the printable study guide.
