UKS2 History - Influential US Presidents Volume II Reading Comprehension Book

This book contains four reading comprehension activities about the lives of four of the most influential US Presidents in history. It includes activities on Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy and Barrack Obama. Students have to read the text and then answer questions. Suitable for ages 9 -13. This resource is ideal for homework activities, reading group activities, 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.
