This book is designed to help students work on their comprehension skills independently, whilst adding to their grammar knowledge and creative writing. Activities are aimed at students in Year 3 or Year 4.
Each 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.
This Activity Book comes with 10 reading comprehension activities.
This book contains the following activities:
1 – The Moon Landing
2 – Nelson Mandela
3 – The California Gold Rush
4 – Marie Curie
5 – Barack Obama
