Incorporate literacy into your social studies time with this reading comprehension activity pack focussing on the geography of Mexico.
Students read an informative text about the geography of Mexico covering its location, human geography, climate and physical features. They then take part in a vocabulary hunt to determine the meaning of key terms, before answering reading comprehension questions about the text.
An extension is included for students to draw inferences and conclusions about their reading and write a short response.
The activity includes teacher instructions and lesson extension ideas and a full answer key.
This reading activity provide a perfect addition to a unit of study around Mexico or world geography. Alternatively it could be used as part of an ongoing series of reading comprehensions covering different countries, with students learning about a different country every week.
