Jimmy Carter 2nd Grade
When I first started teaching second grade there was not anything on the internet about Jimmy Carter and our state’s standards. He was a standard in Georgia, but I could not find anything.
I remember taking the curriculum map and making exactly what was needed to teach!
This Jimmy Carter Activities Pack unit takes a look at Jimmy Carter’s life, beginning with his childhood in Plains, Georgia through his present-day activities. There is a great text features page that has Jimmy Carter Reading Comprehension.
Jimmy Carter Video for 2nd Grade
We were excited when we found a video on the county’s curriculum map that was from GPTV. You would think, “Great! Something we can watch from Public TV...” UM….. NO!
I was in the back of the room when I heard, “He was a crafty son._._._..” I will let you fill in the blanks! 🤦♀️
I flew to the front to turn it off. The two other teachers that were in there with me all started hyperventilating! Did that video really just say that? We immediately called our principal and asked her to come to the room ASAP. We did not know what to do. The kids were fortunately NOT paying attention and no one even noticed it nor said a word if they actually did.
She was cool and said to be prepared for phone calls after school. 📞 BUT we did not have any!!
LESSON LEARNED! We previewed everything after school from that point forward! ✅
Here is one you can preview for yourself and then show!
I would love to help you find more Georgia Historical Figures! Check out this post!
