Working on finding text evidence in reading? These 8 nonfiction passages, organizers, and activities help teach students to refer to and cite text evidence to prove their answers. This set of nonfiction articles about primates teach accountability when answering comprehension questions. Organizers and Fact and Opinion Practice pages included! NO PREP!
These interactive, hands-on passages provide your students with comprehension using text based evidence questions and written response practice.

"Bubbles" rather than crayons are used to indicate which color to underline or highlight in. This is perfect for older, struggling readers to feel more mature and comfortable using these pages. ✽ ✽

Choose the colored versions or the ink-saving black and white versions.
How to use:
Students read the passage at least one time before beginning the questions. Each question has a colored bubble in front of it (the black and white versions have a bubble with a color word written inside). Students will look back in the reading, locate the answer, and underline it using the color designated by the bubble. That’s how they show text evidence and prove their answers.
