A World War 2 close reading passage with comprehension and grammar questions, an extension task, a crossword puzzle and a wordsearch about the Holocaust, where over six million Jewish people were murdered during World War II.

The NO PREP informational text worksheets are perfect for students in fifth grade or sixth grade. Students will learn the key facts about the Holocaust whilst working on their comprehension skills.

Included in this PDF printable resource:

  • An informational text
  • A comprehension activity with ten varied questions
  • Two grammar questions about the text
  • An extension writing activity
  • An answer page for self-assessment or teacher use
  • A crossword puzzle with answer sheet to consolidate learning


This resource is great for:

  • Independent work
  • Homework
  • Guided reading sessions
  • Assessment practice
  • Reading interventions

The activity requires NO PREP; it has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers and answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document. 

This document has been updated to cover the following standards: Define the Holocaust as the planned and systematic state-sponsored persecution and murder of European Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

  • Students will define antisemitism as prejudice against or hatred of the Jewish people.
  • Students will recognize the Holocaust as history’s most extreme example of antisemitism.
  • Students will identify examples of antisemitism (e.g., calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews).
