This resource has three reading texts about Terry Fox, his life story and how he has inspired Canadians.
--- Part 1 includes a numbered seven-paragraph text, a vocabulary list, a Fast Facts section, and an exercise for putting sentences from the text in correct order.
--- Part 2 includes a numbered four-paragraph text, vocabulary list and a grammar exercise (verbs).
--- Part 3 includes a numbered five-paragraph text, vocabulary list and a writing exercise that may be done as a group activity.
The overall reading level is appropriate for grades 5-6. A great way to introduce this beloved Canadian hero to ESL students.
