A bundle of six close reading activities with comprehension and grammar questions followed by extension tasks that look at Ancient Greece and key figures from the era. The NO PREP informational text activities are perfect for students in fifth grade or sixth grade. The resources allow students to learn about the time period whilst developing their comprehension skills.
This bundle contains the following activities:
- An Overview of Ancient Greece
- Alexander the Great
Included in each PDF printable resource:
- An informational text
- A comprehension activity with eight questions
- Two grammar questions about the text
- An extension writing activity
- An answer sheet for self-assessment or teacher use
These resources are great for:
- In class learning
- Independent work
- Guided reading sessions
- Assessment practice
- Reading interventions
- Emergency sub plans
The activities require NO PREP; they each have 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 and answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the documents.
Time allowance to complete each activity:
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.
