This ESL resource includes:
- a 6-paragraph text on the Quebec Winter Carnival;
- a list of 9 vocabulary words (underlined in the text). The text is written at a grade 4 reading level.
- Five 5W questions based on the text with lines for writing answers, which can be done together as a class or individually.
- A second activity consists of a list of 16 Winter Words. Students, working on their own or in a group, decide which words belong in a choice of 4 categories (e.g. the word hat would belong to the winter clothes category). A second chart is provided for students to add their own Winter Words.
Teacher answer sheets for both activities are included.
