UKS2 History - Neil Armstrong Reading Comprehension Activity

An reading activity with comprehension and grammar questions about Neil Armstrong and the Moon Landing in 1969. The close reading activity is ideal for students learning about the space race, the Cold War and US History between the ages of 9-13.

Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.
