Podcast Listening Comprehension Worksheets

BUT WHY: Why Do We Laugh?

Podcasts aren’t just for grown-ups anymore! This resource includes companion activities for the But Why podcast. These engaging and interesting podcasts begin with a question from a kid and contain loads of information from subject matter experts in that area. Your students will enjoy listening to But Why and learn a lot about a variety of topics. The episodes incorporate nicely into social studies and science units!

WHAT'S INCLUDED

These are not generic questions to use with any podcast - the worksheets are specific to a single podcast episode.

1. Comprehension Worksheet - eight questions about the content to answer before, during, and after listening

2. Writing Prompt - an informational question about the podcast with room to plan and write a final copy

3. Word Search - hunt for vocabulary words from the podcast...this makes a great early finisher activity!

HOW TO LISTEN

It is easy (and free) for you and your students to listen to the podcast episodes from any device - you just need to be connected to the Internet. How to access the podcast:

1. Use the bit.ly link included in the file

2. Scan the QR code at the top of the worksheet

3. Go to the podcast website shown on the worksheet

HOW TO USE

How you incorporate these activities is totally up to you - here are a few different ways you can use them!

• Listen to the podcast whole group. This promotes conversation and is a great way to fill time after lunch or before dismissal!

• Have a podcast center where students can listen to and complete activities on their own. This way they can replay parts as needed.

• Don’t feel like you need to do this all at once! The podcasts run from 20-30 minutes, so you may want to spread this out over the course of a week. Here is an example of how you could do it:

Monday - listen to the first half of the podcast

Tuesday - listen to the second half of the podcast

Wednesday - complete the comprehension questions

Thursday - complete the writing prompt

Friday - complete the word search

I will be uploading many more of these - check out the year-long bundle to get 36 different podcast activities at a major discount!
