This Reading Comprehension worksheet is suitable for upper intermediate to proficient ESL learners. The text gives an account of how Easter stories of death and rebirth evolved in the past four millennial to be finally absorbed as symbols by our modern day Christian holiday.
After carefully reading a text, students are required to complete some comprehension exercises including: questions, True or False, a definitions matching exercise and a crossword. The vocabulary used in the text is rather advanced and can also be used for IGSCE, TOEFL or IELTS vocabulary building purposes. The handout can be completed in class or assigned for homework. Ideally, it could be used just before the Easter holidays.
