Product Description
Need reading test prep AND social studies grades? These nonfiction reading passages highlight 8 interesting people in Texas history. Each passage consists of one page of informational text with a biographical paragraph and another paragraph on a related topic, plus one page of 8 multiple choice comprehension questions. The questions include a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on STAAR reading tests. There are 3 questions about the first paragraph, 3 questions about the second paragraph, and 2 questions that compare or contrast both paragraphs. Great language arts and social studies integration!

All of these individuals are specifically required in the Grade 4 Social Studies TEKS, making them great for 4th grade Texas classrooms. The paragraphs are high-interest, filled with academic vocabulary, and quite rigorous. The measured reading levels on most texts range from 5rd-6th, so your lowest readers may need extra support and teacher guidance.

Please check out the preview to determine if these passages would be suitable for your students.
