LKS2 Literacy - Historical Superstars of Sport Bundle of Reading Comprehension Activities

This is a bundle of four Year 3 or Year 4 reading comprehension activities, or informational text activities, about four historical superstars of sport - Muhammed Ali, Jackie Robinson, Jesse Owens and Michael Jordan. Perfect for Black History Month.

The informational texts look into the lives, careers and achievements of each individual, and conclude with comprehension and grammar questions. They also contain extension activities for fast-finishing students. They are aimed at students between the ages of 7-10.

Each resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

Each activity requires NO PREP; they have 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 pages of the documents.
