Short worksheet Ive used in my world history class. Its an easy read for the lower-level students, and has three short questions at the end.
This is a great reading comprehension worksheet with a short read about the Age of Exploration and a focus on Marco Polo. The students read a few paragraphs and then answer three questions using the content provided.
As with almost all of my worksheets, this only takes up one sheet of paper front and back - saving the environment while also not taking up too many of your copies if you are on a limit at your school!
