Instructional Ideas

  • Use in a reading warm-up or as homework
  • Have kids write their own passages about amazing animals, leaving out important words and including context clues for their peers to decipher
Classroom Considerations

  • Picture is in color, but you should be able to print successfully in black-and-white
Pros

  • You could use the worksheet in any lesson that focuses on context clues
Cons

  • Passage is confusing; the moose does not actually ride a bike, though the title and second part of the story imply that it does
  • Some blanks are more difficult to fill in than others, and some sentences have several blank spaces in a row
