Summarization questions are included on separate pages, giving you the option to work on this important skill with your students as test prep. Great for integrating science and reading!

The questions cover a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests. The last two questions of each passage are about similarities and differences. Lined and unlined Venn diagrams are included.
