– The Attacks of September 11th
– The History of Halloween

Each passage is followed by a reading comprehension assessment that includes 8 (Common Core) multiple choice questions and a short response. Answer Sheets and teacher answer keys are also included.
After the assessment, the students get to color and cut the craftivity to display around the room. Each craftivity is designed as a foldable so that the students can record their short response answers inside.

***** Like all of our reading comprehension materials, you will find that these informational text passages will mimic the intensity of the complex text that your students will encounter on Standardized Reading Exams. Close reading is encouraged so that the students can effectively answer the text dependent questions in the assessment. All paragraphs are numbered for questions that require the student to “look back” and analyze a particular aspect of the text.
