This is a great passage!

Thanks very much. These passages are excellent and the questions are very well planned too. This will be a great help with my English speaking pupils that always need extra work within my efl class.

This passage was a great way to support my science teacher as she prepares for the STAAR Science test, yet still working on reading comprehension skills.

These passages are great!
