This seasons reading comprehension is a perfect student-led lesson on seasons, equinoxes, and solstices! All questions are text-dependent and do not require prior knowledge. This is a fantastic lesson all on its own and would make a great homework, introductory activity, review, or sub-plan.


Science article reading comprehension and questions make excellent sub-plans, a great close and careful classroom reading, meaningful homework, or alternative work for an absent student. Finding reliable articles or reading comprehension questions on the Internet is time consuming, and too often, secondary science students find the answer key online. This is easy to implement and your students won’t find the answers online! Your students will be engaged with science literacy in your classroom!
