This resource is a reading comprehension activity covering the story of Jesus’ arrest before Good Friday. I have adapted the bible story to create a descriptive passage for Grades 5 or 6. It is split into three differentiated levels.

Higher Ability

There is a reading booklet of 3 pages (780 words) and a 4 page booklet of questions (12 questions). The passage is very descriptive and includes some advanced vocabulary. The questions are varied and include finding the meaning of words and phrases, drawing inferences, describing characters, ordering the story, true or false questions and multiple choice tick questions.

Middle Ability

There is a reading booklet of 3 pages (654 words) and a 4 page booklet of questions (12 questions). This passage is slightly shorter and simpler than the higher ability passage. The questions are varied and include finding the meaning of words and phrases, drawing inferences, describing characters, ordering the story, true or false questions and multiple choice tick questions.


Lower Ability

There is a reading booklet of 3 pages (564 words) and a 4 page booklet of questions (11 questions.) This is the shortest, simplest passage, while still challenging the kids. The questions are varied and include finding the meaning of words and phrases, drawing inferences, describing characters, true or false questions and multiple choice tick questions.


There is also a set of answers for each level.
