Science - Rocks and Minerals
Questions and activities were written for the informational reading in the National Geographic Reading Expeditions series. This particular set of questions is for the book Earth Science, Rocks and Minerals, by Glen Phelan (2004).
The student book is separated into 3 main chapters, and is 32-pages in length. I needed something with a variety of questions for my students to practice critical thinking and reading skills in informational text. The questions and activities written for this book were developed with that in mind. In order to use these questions, your students will need access to that book.
Comprehension activities in this series include a variety of question types: multiple choice, multiple response, matching, short answer, precision in short answer, and true and false questions. You can pick and choose which assignments you’d like and buy them singly, or they are also available as a complete set.
