This has been developed to prepare students for standardized testing over the Common Core Standards for fifth grade specifically. The passage comes from released test items from the Georgia CRCT. There is one passage and 10 questions (both multiple choice and short answer).
Also included is a writing prompt with 3 parts. Part A is a short answer response from the text, part B is a paragraph response using compare/contrast, and part C is an extended response written as a multi-paragraph narrative.
You are not paying for the passage, but rather the time and effort it took to create questions, label them with standards, and edit the document for student use.
