This is an ESL reading comprehension loosely based on the story of the Tortoise and the Hare.
It covers vocabulary about health and visiting the doctor/pharmacy and also includes some vocabulary about competing and racing. The key vocabulary words are:
The text is editable and there are 5 T?F comprehension questions as well as 5 word/phrase puzzles to complete. This includes a crossword covering all the vocabulary above.
There is a full answer key for all the questions and puzzles.
I use this reading for Primary Grade 6 ESL students and change the names in the story to match those of some of the children in the class. They enjoy the story and the puzzles.
