I created this comprehension activity to complement a book study "Smart Words: Rocks and Minerals." It includes vocabulary for all three chapters and an area to summarize each portion of the text. There are 2 formats included-worksheet or trifold which is the paper-saving method I choose to use. The Smart Words book collections are wonderful ways to reinforce difficult science concepts. Students will answer questions based on important vocabulary and then have the opportunity to summarize each portion of the text. This is also a wonderful way to teach features of a nonfiction text as well. If there is a book that you are interested in having a comprehension pack for, please Q&A me at my TPT store.
