This reading comprehension and writing activity addresses CCGPS standards from Georgia: Standards: SS3H1a, ELACC3RI1, ELACC3RI2, ELACC3RI8, ELACC3W3, ELACC3W8. There is a general lesson plan with essential question and standards listed. The printable materials begin with a reading passage that compares and contrasts the ancient Olympics with the modern Olympics. There are two forms of a comprehension check, in which students list details from the passage with the matching main idea. One form is for on and above level learners; the other form is adapted for students who need more scaffolding. The last page is an open-ended writing activity about traveling back in time to the ancient Olympics. I hope you enjoy using my product!
