Product Description

This is a world history passage and assessment telling the story of the Scramble for Africa. It works as a stand-alone resource for the study of this time period or as an introductory reading for a lengthier unit on the colonization or history of Africa. The text clearly details the major causes of European imperialism and colonization, the areas conquered and colonized by each European power, and the effects of the “Scramble for Africa” on African societies.

The close reading text was written for Grade 5-8 reading levels and can be used in a number of ways by teachers (close reading, direct instruction in class, independent practice, homework, test prep, assessment, centers, etc). Please see the Preview for part of the text and all the assessment questions.

This “printable/no prep” resource includes:

1) A detailed and informative 1100-word historical passage titled “The Scramble for Africa.”

2) A set of 35 questions that include vocabulary and comprehension of the passage and that require close reading and re-reading of the text. There is also an extension question at the end of the assessment.

3) An additional crossword puzzle for early finishers or to use as another form of assessment.

4) Answers to every question.
