I am offering an explanatory paragraph with 8 reading comprehension questions. The topic of the paragraph is “How to Make Pottery,” an interesting one that shows steps in a process and uses time-order words. If your students are writing explanatory paragraphs this is a great springboard. The reading comprehension questions are mostly inferential comprehension ones that challenge your students to make inferences, draw conclusions, identify causes and effects, sequence, and locate details. The paragraph questions will not only stimulate your students’ thinking, but will force them to read carefully, too. You get 2 photos (showing coils of clay and a potter’s wheel). The third page is an answer key.
