Stories from the Stable - Christmas Nativity reading comprehensions

Stories from the Stable - Christmas Nativity reading comprehensions

Have you ever wondered how far Mary and Joseph travelled on the donkey? Or why Bethlehem was so busy at the time of Jesus birth? Or what myrrh actually is? Your students will find out these and more through these fascinating stories from the Nativity. From Mary and Joseph to the shepherds and wise men, these accounts paint the picture of what life must have been like in Nazareth and Bethlehem at this time. Each passage comes with a series of questions that will test students' comprehension skills through fact retrieval, word meaning and inference and deduction.
