This PDF resource is a Student Comprehension Question Packet to go along with the NON-FICTION book, Mummies and Their Mysteries by Charlotte Wilcox. According to Fountas and Pinnell, the book is a Level X and would be appropriate for grades 5-8; however, the appropriate grade level will vary based on the needs and maturity of your students. The text itself, in my opinion, is not what makes the reading level such a high one, but the content and graphics contained in the book. Students need to have a good understanding of the fact that people live and die and their bodies (normally) decay after death. In the case of the mummies presented in this book, that wasn't the case! Most students will find this subject matter quite engaging and these materials would go perfectly with a unit of study on Ancient Egypt and the mummification process as an entire chapter of the book is devoted to it.
The packet is designed for independent student usage and includes comprehension questions, vocabulary, and other deep thinking questions for each chapter of the book. You could also use it for students to work on in groups, or even as a whole class reading assignment. Included in the download is a brief suggested learning sequence as a guide for its use.
