Bob’s Trip to Arizona (part 2) – reading comprehension with a PDF and live worksheets (A1)

Share with others:

I’ve decided to continue the story of Bob and his new Indian friend, Nebi.

In part 2 of his trip to Arizona, he is invited to Nebi’s village and meets new people. The grammar of the text is still simple – mainly present tenses. However, I really wanted to apply the past simple of ‘be’ as this is the grammar structure that my 5th-grade students have been practising recently. Besides, the text allows the students to revise some vocabulary on places in town. As previously, the main goal is to provide the students with some reading practice.
