Here are a series of nonfiction articles along with multiple choice questions and an answer key.  Children should read and annotate the texts and work through the multiple choice question (eliminate obvious wrong answers and try to narrow each question to two possible correct answers before selecting a final answer).  Additionally, there is a series of question stems that can be used to talk with children about the books or articles they are reading.  These question prompts are designed to imitate the language students are likely to see on a state exam.
