Product Description
Study Jonas Salk, Maria Mitchell, Cyrus McCormick, Bill Gates, and Louis Pasteur using single biographical paragraphs, nonfiction paired texts, or both. These scientists and inventors are specifically required in the Grade 3 Social Studies TEKS (Texas standards). Great test prep, too!

The single paragraphs include one page with a biographical paragraph and 4 multiple choice comprehension questions. The paired texts include one page with the same biographical paragraph along with another nonfiction paragraph about a related topic, and one page of 8 multiple choice comprehension questions. The very last question asks students to compare or contrast both of the paragraphs. The questions include a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests.

The readability levels of these passages is in the upper elementary range. Please check the preview to help you determine whether or not they would be suitable for your students. You can purchase with confidence, as I have 32 years of experience in preparing upper elementary students for standardized reading testing!
