IMPORTANT---- I offer this SAME passage in two different formats. This particular product is a one page passage with 9 text-based questions that go along with the passage.

The other format is for interactive notebooks. It is the exact same passage and similar questions just formatted differently. If you would like to view the interactive notebook version, click HERE . You can then read the description to see which format works best for you.


This passage was written with 4th graders in mind, but it can be used with more advanced third graders or weaker fifth grade readers. Please use your best judgement.
