This resource includes four illustrated pages of text, two pages of comprehension questions and two pages of vocabulary work. The texts are an introduction to the life of Galileo for students in roughly grades 5-7. A timeline is included on page 4 for student reference. This resource would work well for science, social studies or for ELA as a nonfiction unit.
Two pages of questions (assessing comprehension as well as expressing opinions while citing evidence) are included as well as two vocabulary pages. For the latter activity, students define each word and then apply that word to what they have learned from the passages. An example is given. The vocabulary words on both pages are from the texts. Questions and vocabulary work are divided into two sections: for pages 1 and 2 and for pages 3 and 4. Student work pages are clearly marked.
A full answer key is provided. Please note that the examples given on the answer key for vocabulary work are just that - student answers are likely to be phrased differently.
