Do you watch the Super Bowl?......
This pack includes a short close reading passage to help students better understand what the Super Bowl is. It is filled with fun and interesting facts surrounding the Big Game.
Did you know that 111 million people watch the Super Bowl? How about the fact that Pizza Hut sells 16 million slices of pizza during the hours surrounding the game. Businesses pay 4 million dollars for a 30 second commercial during the Super Bowl game. Your students will love these high interest facts plus many others.
Although I included lots of facts, there are many others you could talk about that I did not include. It should be a fun topic to read about.
Also, this can be used the week before the game, or really any time of the year.
Please click on the preview above to get a better idea of what is included.
This passage was written with 4th graders in mind, but it can be used with more advanced third graders or weaker fifth grade readers. Please use your best judgement.
This pack includes a one page reading passage that should help students better understand some fun facts about the Super Bowl game.
In addition to the passage, there are about 12 questions. One is on the definition of concoction (referring to a guacamole concoction), one is on what the Super Bowl is and who participates, and then many others.
An answer key is also provided.
PLEASE.... if you have any questions about the questions asked, what the passage includes, or anything else, just send me a message before you buy. :-) I will be glad to try and answer those.
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.

***All topics come with a passage, questions, and answer key.
In this passage, trademarked names are used to refer to goods or services which could not otherwise be described if the name was not used. Use of the names does not imply sponsorship or endorsement, as they fall under nominative fair use. There is no capitalization being made on consumer confusion, as there is no claim being made to the names, they are simply included to tell about the history and facts surrounding the topic.. The only way to write a factual informational article about the Super Bowl is to use the name. For questions, feel free to contact me.
