These 16 half-page task cards contain longer passages and are a great resource for closely reading text. This resource contains literature and informational text passages. Questions are in-depth to cover compare and contrasting animal survival techniques, how a character changes from the beginning to the end of a passage, and even more topics of compare and contrast.
This is an excellent extension to reading programs because questions are written at higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy to help students evaluate and analyze what they read.
