This is a reading comprehension package about Queen Lili'uokalani, Hawaii's last ruling queen. When we were getting ready to do a unit on Hawai’i in my school, I couldn’t find any good resources for my younger students, so I created several packages, including this one. There are two versions of the text at different reading levels.
I used this with grades one to five. The older students completed it independently. My mid-range students completed it during guided reading groups. My lowest readers enjoyed it as a read-aloud. All my students were very engaged in the text.
In addition to the reading passage, I’ve included worksheets on basic comprehension, vocabulary, and dictionary skills. I’ve also included a timeline worksheet.
Please note that you can check out the full product in the preview, if you are wondering whether the reading level will work with your students.
