Product Description
This a reading comprehension and vocabulary lesson in the subject area of science. It is about Maria Mitchell, an American astronomer, who became famous when she discovered a new comet. At an early age Maria Mitchell wanted to know about the stars. She studied and read all the books she could about them. Night after night she looked through her telescope at the sky to see if she could find any new stars. Then, in 1847 she discovered a new comet and became famous! Eventually, she became the first professional women astronomer, and one of the greatest astronomers in the world.
Following a vocabulary list and two pages of informational text there are twenty multiple choice questions. Reading comprehension skills reflected in the questions are: relating causes and effects, identifying author’s purpose, inferring character traits, locating details, and making inferences. Vocabulary taught and tested includes: comet, crater, enthusiast, ideal, inscribed, inspiring, observation, and telescope. You also get a picture of Maria Mitchell and one of a comet. The seventh page is the answer key.
This product will work well in your reading class, science class, or as a test prep for standardized test-taking. It can also serve as an interesting activity for Women's History Month which is in March!
