UKS2 History - Christopher Columbus  Reading Comprehension Activity

A reading comprehension activity about the life and travels of Christopher Columbus - students have to read the text and then answer questions. Suitable for ages 10-14. This resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

Each worksheet 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.

Time allowance ( one hour)
5 minutes - read through the text individually.
40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)
15 minutes - Teacher and students go through the text and answers.
