This is a brief reading passage about sound waves, and specifically the dangers of loud sounds. It would be a great resource to use with close reading or active reading strategies. It has 3 questions that follow, and all answers can be found directly in the text. I created this resource for an extra review for my 6th grade students before a test, based on data showing that this was the concept from the waves unit that they struggled with the most. I used it as a mini lesson but it could also be a homework assignment. I think the information contained in the passage could also be a good introduction to the unit.
Included in the pdf file is a one-page reading passage, 3 questions about the passage, and an answer key.
If you use this resource and enjoy it, please leave positive feedback! Thanks so much for viewing my item!
