In the booklet there are two reading comprehension activities about Touching the Void. The resources are ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, homework, exam/test preparation etc.
Each worksheet requires NO PREP and has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
The first activity focuses on British mountaineer, Joe Simpson, the man who fell hundreds of feet into a crevasse; and the second on Simon Yates, his climbing partner who cut the rope on him.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.
Time allowance ( one hour)
5 minutes - read through the text individually.
40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)
15 minutes - Teacher and students go through the text and answers.
