Unit 6: The Reformation

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Over three weeks, fifth graders read about and discuss the Reformation which saw religion and politics shift across Europe. Following daily readings, young scholars practice spelling, grammar, and morphology skills such as prefixes, suffixes, conjunctions, prepositions, and more. To demonstrate their learning, students draft friendly letters and create slide presentations.
