Description

This is a history reading passage and comprehension assessment on Captain James Cook, the English explorer and navigator. Cook is known for three major voyages that helped map uncharted territories, including the Pacific Ocean. He explored and claimed parts of Australia and Hawaii for Britain. Cook's voyages also contributed to scientific knowledge, discovering new species and mapping coastlines. His accomplishments paved the way for further exploration and trade in the Pacific region.

This passage is written for Grade 5-8 students and can be used in a number of ways by teachers (close reading, direct instruction in class, independent practice, homework, test prep, assessment, sub work, centers, etc).

This "printable/no prep" resource includes:

1) An engaging 1000-word passage called 'Captain James Cook: Pacific Explorer." The passage is at an upper elementary and middle school reading level and tells the story of Cook's life and his three famous and historically significant Pacific expeditions.

2) A total of 37 questions, including vocabulary, close-reading comprehension, and sequencing events from Cook's life and travels. These questions require a close reading and re-reading of text and were written to align with these Common Core Informational Text Standards: RI.4.1, RI.4.5, RI.5.1, and RI.5.4.

3) A crossword puzzle for early finishers or to use as another form of assessment.

4) Answers to every question.
