Nonfiction Reading Passages: These 26 nonfiction reading passages and comprehension questions will provide your students with an engaging learning experience. This Common Core aligned product is a great way for your students to work on understanding nonfiction text, rather than just following along with it.
I have included 12 ways for you to use these passages as whole group, partners/small group, and independent work. Your students will improve their understanding of nonfiction by answering questions that involve main idea, cause and effect, compare and contrast, finding facts, sequence, inferring vocabulary.
