Active reading sheets on earth structure and rocks

Overall rating 4 out of 54.3 (6 ratings)

Active reading sheets mean that the pupils have to read them though several times in quick succession to get the answers. They choose the titles for the paragraphs and select data for later questions. Useful tool for conveying lots of info fast and generating discussion. The sedimentary rocks she More…et is just an old-fashioned cut and sort into order. Give pupils the precut sheets as they are printed in order

A great literacy task that mixes useful geographical information with the skill of skim reading information.
