Looking for reading comprehension passages and questions? A Comprehension Quest® is a fun way to get students excited about practicing reading comprehension! Starting off with the hook video, students learn they have a quest to complete.

In this edition, students must figure out who the author is of a firsthand account letter written by a Titanic survivor.

Students will read 6 passages and complete standards aligned reader response activities. After each activity, they will earn a clue that will get them one step closer to solving the quest.

What's Included:

•A hook video introducing the quest (2 versions- wmv and mp4)

•6 Non-Fiction Passages and Standards Aligned Response Activities/Graphic Organizers (2-4 response options are given after each passage. These can be used to differentiate instruction from 2nd grade level through 5th grade level.)

•Answer Keys for Reading Response Activities (to save you time!)

•6 Clues

•Elimination chart and teacher answer key (Students will eliminate different people after they receive each clue)

•Certificate of completion

A Digital Version of this Quest is now included! (Use with Google Slides in Google Classroom). Learn more here!
