The comprehension questions follow along the Benchmark Universe Curriculum (Benchmark Advanced) for third grade. This document includes all three weeks of unit 3.
The skills practiced are:
(3.1) main idea and details, use context clues, use information from photographs, use context clues, evaluate sources, and analyze text connections: compare and contrast and graphic features.
(3.2) main idea and details, inferencing, use text features, and compare and contrast.
(3.3) main idea and details, cause and effect, inferencing, and compare and contrast.
There are also questions about the phonics skill for the week. The questions created match the Benchmark Universe assessments for third grade. There are also short response questions to help students practice finding text evidence to support their answer. I have included an answer key at the end of the document that includes examples of the short responses.
