LKS2 Geography - Mount Everest Reading Comprehension Activity

A reading comprehension activity about the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The informational text looks at key facts about the mountain and the first attempts at reaching the summit. The reading comprehension resource is perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about mountains or for geography projects.

The 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.

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

We also specialize in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. And a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
