UKS2 History - The Slave Trade Reading Comprehension Activity

A reading comprehension activity about the trans-Atlantic slave trade - students have to read the text and then answer questions. Suitable for ages 9-13. The activity 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.
