One thing I have never like about a lot of publisher-created materials on practicing sequence in reading is that they usually require students to read a text and then sequence 8-10 events in the story with numbers for 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. The problem with this format is that once students make a single mistake in ordering the events, all the other numbers are thrown off, they've made a mess of the whole worksheet, and they are frustrated. This printable avoids that by having them read a text and then choose which of three events given from the text comes before the other two (in a multiple-choice format). To add a little twist, in the last of the four readings students choose which event happened last.
There are three short informational texts here on three famous Americans followed by a short fictional text about a hiking trip. Student answer six questions on each of the four texts. Answers provided.
