Here is a lesson in which you can teach reading as well as science. It starts with a page of basic information about volcanoes. Two more pages have a full diagram of an erupting volcano and ten reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. Nine of the questions are multiple choice and the tenth is a short answer application question. In order to keep the lesson appropriate for primary grades I avoided complicated terminology. It does have basic vocabulary words like: volcano, magma, lava, vents, and craters. Reading comprehension skills included are: determining main idea, locating details, making inferences, and finding causes for effects. The lesson should work very well for 2nd and 3rd graders in regular education and fluently reading 1st graders. It should also enhance the reading skills and science concepts of older special education and remedial reading students, who most likely will find the topic interesting. The lesson is on a word document to enable you to change it to your liking and to your students' needs if desired. The 4th page of the document is the answer key.
