PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product was updated in March of 2015 to correct minor typos and add a whole new section! The original document has now been modified to include an advanced, intermediate (previously the basic level), and a basic level. This makes it even more practical to use with students with various needs!

Keep your students engaged while using this fun football packet! This packet contains short biographies of 5 popular football players. The passages and worksheets are divided into "advanced", "intermediate", and "basic" levels so you can adapt the material to suit the varying needs of different students. In addition to the reading passages and worksheets, there is also a fun trivia game at the end. Although the trivia game can be modified with a little effort, it was developed using the "advanced" level passages and will be most appropriate for use with the students reading/comprehending at that level. The trivia game includes game pawns, football field game boards, and 36 game cards to play the game. Here is a breakdown of what is included for each level:

*Advanced Level Contents -->Each player has a one page biography, and two corresponding worksheets. One worksheet addresses reading/auditory comprehension and the other addresses vocabulary. Answer keys are also provided for both worksheets. At the end of the packet there are 30 trivia questions for a fun football-themed game.

*Intermediate Level Contents --> Each player has a one page biography (larger font and less content), a worksheet with five questions to address reading/auditory comprehension, an answer key, and a fill in the blank vocab worksheet. This type of vocab worksheet allows you to choose the words that are most appropriate for your student’s needs.

*Basic Level Contents - These passages have been simplified and are the most basic of all of the passages used for this packet. Each passage contains a worksheet with three reading comprehension questions and a blank vocab sheet that can be used to select your own vocab words to target for each student.
