Jackson and Sectional Differences Differentiated Instruction Lesson Plan

This social studies differentiated instruction lesson plan includes:

  • Lesson Plan
  • There are three different ability levels of vocabulary sheets. The enriched version allows for more critical thinking by making the students write the definition in their own words. The average version has students filling in the blanks of the definitions. The basic version has the complete definition to allow them to read the definition and then work on step two, which is on all of the versions; write a sentence or draw a picture to show understanding of the vocabulary word.


  • 2 Ability Levels of Note Sheets are provided for the Basic and Enriched PowerPoints. The basic note sheet provides slots for students to fill in their notes. The enriched note sheets give the students the ability to write their notes in their own words.


  • An activity choice sheet is available to help you plan. If you have your students fill this out the day before, you will know how many copies to make for each activity and how they would like to work. You will need to group appropriately.

Social Studies Differentiated Activities

  • Students will be able to choose between a Puppet Show and Newspaper Article Activity. Each of these comes with a rubric to help you grade. Allowing students to choose their activity should increase their interest in the content.
