Use a contents page to locate information (non-fiction retrieval)

This hits a Year 3 target. Some questions are based on a contents page, some are retrieval from a fact page. Some slides for whole class teaching also, printable for children's books. Final slide has a response question to prompt higher order thinking. We have used it at the same time as our Forces and Magnets topic in Science.
