A Holiday Story and a Song

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the star of this FREE Informational Text.

Rudolph’s story is chronicled from his origins as a promotional strategy for the Montgomery Ward Company to his rise to world super stardom. Students will be interested in the little-known history of this holiday favorite and adults will find that Rudolph’s true story has some surprises.

Students can practice their CCSS skills with the accompanying 12 questions.

Answer keys for the 12 questions also list the CCSS alignments.

The Teacher’s Resources section presents additional writing prompts and ideas for CCSS activities including making media comparisons (a book and a film, for example) and research ideas to give students a more in-depth look at some of the people and events mentioned in the article. The e-bibliography used to compose this Informational Text is also included.
