    • Good afternoon!
      Thanks for your comment and it's lovely to hear from you! We encourage teachers to use their knowledge of their own class to decide whether or not resources like this would be suitable for the children they are teaching. If you could tell me which year group you teach, I'd be happy to have a look and see what other resources might be suitable for your class. I hope this clears things up! :)

  • I have noted an error in the three star text. In the Red Land paragraph, last sentence, you have missed off the 'precious metals' before the 'precious gems' phrase. Otherwise it sounds like copper and gold are gems. The other two text seem fine. Thanks for the resource.

This differentiated comprehension activity teaches the children all about Egyptian uses of their land and river. There are three levels of questions designed to encourage children to use their comprehension and historical enquiry skills.
This resource is available in Standard and Black and White.
