A reading comprehension activity about the the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart. The reading comprehension resource is perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about US History or for Women’s History Month. The informational text looks into some of the key facts about her life and finishes with her disappearance and probable death.
The activity requires NO PREP and has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.

5 minutes - read through the text individually.
