A close reading activity giving an overview of World War I. The reading comprehension resource is perfect for students in 3rd grade or 4th grade who are learning about World War 1 or US History. The informational text begins with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and the start of the war, followed by some of the key facts, and ends with the surrender of Germany in 1918.
The activity 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.
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
