Color by number and reading comprehension come together in this inspiring and innovative activity created by The Bonus Point Band. Test your students' comprehension of the age-old tale of "King Midas and the Golden Touch" by allowing them to compare and contrast the main character at the beginning and the end of the story.
Using this printable Microsoft Word document, the students will answer questions such as, "Was King Midas selfish or unselfish?" The answers to their questions will tell them what colors to use as they color the picture of the rose at the top of the page.
You may download this document to your computer and change any of the questions or numbers to your liking. This activity will be useful for a reading center, quiz, or any other type of practice. If you are using the Scott Foresman Reading Street series, you will find this to be an especially indispensable part of your curriculum.
