Integrate science and reading while learning about the Sun with this comprehension worksheet.
Looking for Science Reading Comprehension Worksheets?
Are you looking for a way to integrate both science and reading? We understand how it may be hard to have a dedicated science block penciled into your day, so combining these two subjects is the perfect way to address some of those important science standards during your reading block. Teach Starter has created a comprehension worksheet where students will read about the Sun, its characteristics, and why it is important to us. After reading the passage, students must use the text to answer questions about what they read.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
