Here are some short reading passages and comprehension questions to compliment your Science unit on Forces and Motion. You get:
- 5 one page information texts about basic concepts of forces, pushing, pulling, gravity and friction
- 5 comprehension pages, one for each concept
- a booklet title page
The information pages are written for readers at the 2nd or 3rd grade level. Vocabulary words that you may wish to preteach are given at the top of each page. These pages can be used to build fluency, as kids can read the page 3 times and color a check mark each time they read.
Each comprehension page follows a similar format, so kids can work independently. Each page has 3 questions about the text. Kids are asked to highlight or color the words in the text where they find the answer to each question, and then print their answer. The last question helps them apply their learning to real life and draw a picture.
I hope this pack will provide a great supplement to your exploration of Forces and Motion! You can choose a black line or color version of the information pages.
