Product Description
Build comprehension using these 6 nonfiction short passages that compare and contrast similar animals, each featuring informational text and 4 multiple-choice questions on one page. Animals include aardvarks and anteaters, alligators and crocodiles, alpacas and llamas, dogs and wolves, honey bees and wasps, and octopuses and squids. Lined and unlined Venn diagrams for each passage are also included. Great for integrating science and reading!

The questions cover a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests. The last two questions of each passage are about similarities and differences.

Readability is in the 4th-5th grade range. Please check the preview to help you determine whether or not they would be suitable for your students. 3rd graders will need more teacher support with decoding and vocabulary. You can purchase with confidence, as I have 32 years of experience in preparing upper elementary students for standardized reading testing!
