This product is to help increase student’s awareness about Easter as well as work on listening comprehension, short term memory and answering wh questions.
There are 21 short passages about Easter related topics including the history of Easter in different countries. Each excerpt contains several sentences. Then there are three WH questions associated with the excerpt (some shorter ones only have 2 questions). This can be a print and go activity or you can cut out each set of facts. You can put them in a pile and if you are working with a group of students they can go around in a circle reading the facts/questions and having other peers answer the questions so it’s also working on reading skills.
This is a great activity for students who need to improve their auditory processing skills because they need to auditorily process the information. If it is too much for your students to process all the information you can read one sentence at a time and ask them a question directly after hearing the information. Students can also read the passages themselves and answer the questions to work on reading comprehension.
