Ten reading comprehension activities, or informational texts, with comprehension and grammar questions followed by extension tasks about some amazing women from history. The Google Form activities are ideal for distance learning and perfect for students in Year 5 or Year 6 learning about World History.
When downloaded these resources include printable versions of the reading comprehensions and PDFs with a link that allow you to copy the Google Forms documents and save them in your Google Drive.
The activities can be completed by students online using tablets, phones or computers, and are easily assessed by teachers as all the answers are provided in a quick and easy format.
This bundle contains the following reading comprehension activities:
- Marie Curie
- Rosa Parks
- Mother Teresa
- Ruby Bridges
- Anne Frank
- J.K. Rowling
- Serena Williams
- Greta Thunberg
- Amelia Earhart
Time allowance to complete each of the ten activities:
5-10 minutes - read through the text individually.
30-40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)
Time allowance to assess each activity:
A class set of activities might take around 15-20 minutes to mark; the teacher can then send the students their marks automatically, which allows them to read back through their work. Nearly all answers are not automatically generated, but only require a small amount of work to assign points. This is because the aim is to get students writing answers and not to just have multiple choice options.
Please ensure when you download this resource into Google Drive that you are logged in to the gmail account where you wish to store the activity. In the past teachers have downloaded resources into their school account in error. Thanks :)
