Having said that, this is not a lower elementary or beginner's lesson on introducing and using a table of contents, but rather a review lesson for students when they are older than grade 1. It is best used by students in grades 3-6.
They are expected to have seen a table of contents before, and the questions asked are based as much on reading skills/observation/understanding the question asked as on the table of contents. This is a three-page printable with three different table of contents used and a total of 28 questions asked. Answers are provided for each exercise.
The completion of this can lead to a good discussion and be applied to their other texts that have a table of contents. I also have my students find a text with a table of contents and have them create their own questions/answers about it to test their classmates and demonstrate their understanding, similar to the format of this worksheet.
