World War 2 informational texts with comprehension and grammar questions. This book is designed to help students develop their knowledge of key areas of World War 2, whilst working on their comprehension skills independently, and adding to their grammar knowledge and creative writing.
Each 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.
