This is a short write up of how Scarecrows came to be. A good activity when talking about symbols of fall or teaching about agriculture. It is written for a 3rd or 4th grade reading level. Various levels of comprehension questions follow. This can be individual, cooperative, or whole group.
For individual: Have students read this silently and answer the comprehension questions that follow.
For cooperative: Assign a partner and have the students take turn readings and then talk about the comprehension questions together. Students can even be assigned one comprehension question to share the answer with the rest of the class.
For Whole Group: Take volunteers to read each question and answer the questions as a class or have students answer the questions independently and then go over them as a class.
