Text activity: Jumbled Words

Jumbled Words splits the text using full stops and line breaks. (Short sentences of fewer than 3 words are combined, and long sentences are split using other punctuation, where possible.) 

Students complete the activity by putting the words of each section of the text into the correct order.

The Jumbled Words activity works particularly well as a scaffolded translation activity. See the following link, which is the same as in the embedded resource above, but this time with a parallel text included:
