What makes a great leader? The new World Leaders category in Raz-Plus’ Themed Nonfiction Series helps students explore this question with new books and supporting materials that describe what makes an influential leader.
With this new addition to the Themed Nonfiction Series, students can build upon prior knowledge and develop a holistic perspective of history and culture with opportunities to dive deeper into social studies, history, and geography.
In each book, students will explore a leader’s biography to discover what made that figure so significant. These books are leveled for grade 3-6 students and include supporting materials like activity cards, comprehension quizzes, a timeline poster that outlines major events in the featured leader’s life, and teaching tips.
The new books feature the following World Leaders: Alexander the Great, George Washington, Julius Caesar, King George III, Queen Elizabeth I, Ramses II, and Saladin.
The World Leader category complements other books in our Themed Nonfiction Series, so you can plan a multi-day project that allows students to discover a theme, place, or person from multiple perspectives.
