UKS2 History - Abraham Lincoln Reading Comprehension Activity

A reading comprehension activity about the life of Abraham Lincoln - students have to read the text and then answer questions. Suitable for ages 9-13. Great to introduce Abraham Lincoln for History topics. This resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

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.
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.
