This resource includes:
--- two reading passages with brief references to the origins of domestic cats and their communication skills and the origins of the English language, as well as briefly mentioning some of the origins of words associated with cats.
--- each text has a work page including vocabulary and comprehension question activities. The passages have a common topic but can be used at different times.
--- a list of 34 words associated with cats is also included to help students choose a word to research for the “word origin challenge” at the bottom of the work page that accompanies the second text. This page is not numbered and is at the very end of the file.
--- a full answer key is provided for objective work.
