This resource is great for:

The activity requires NO PREP; it has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers and answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.


Time allowance to complete:

5 minutes - read through the text individually.

40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)

15 minutes - Teacher and students go through the text and answers.
