The Olympic Games excite and inspire our students! Our youngest athletes, the female gymnastics team, are always a crowd favorite so I have created 4 close reading passages with comprehension questions that will help engage your students and get them to read deeper! This resource also includes brochures that your students can create about each gymnast! This makes a wonderful bulletin board!
