These are short reading comprehension paragraphs based around topics related to genetics and heredity. Topics include twins, DNA, hemophilia, cloning and Gregor Mendel. All are written between the 6th and 8th grade reading level based on the Flesch-Kincaid system in Microsoft Word. However, these paragraphs are short and may not be an appropriate reading level for all classes. Please download the preview to verify they will meet your needs.
Each reading comprehension page include a two to three paragraph reading selection and two to three questions based on the reading. These are designed to take no more than ten minutes to complete and can be completed as a warm-up or an introduction to futher discussions on the topic.
File includes title page, five reading selections, answer key and thank you page.
