Open your Eyes to Pavement Plants E2-E3 version

A reading comprehension exercise differentiated Entry Level 2 and Entry Level 3 Functional Skills English. 

Based on an article from Spring 2020 about finding wild plants in towns.  Designed for a mixed ability class so that everyone could be working on the same theme.  [An E1 version is also available]. Questions cover almost all E2 and E3 FS Reading criteria and allow for practice in sentence writing as well as comprehension.

Plus an accompanying colour plant finder poster and related crossword puzzle.

One of a set of exercises finding positive topical themes to explore in lockdown, written as worksheets to send out to maintain engagement for learners who had no IT access.  Answer sheets were then sent out the following week for self-assessment. Now coming in handy again for lockdowns mark 2 and 3, and for post-lockdown.
