Portfolio Level 4 Reading

Level 4 Close Activity
I am learning to add words to a text so it makes sense at level 4.
The following piece of writing has words missing.
Read the whole piece of writing first to get an idea of what it is about.
Fill in the gaps so that the piece of writing makes sense.
Write only ONE word in each space.
You can cross out and change answers as you go along.


The largest of all flying creatures is the albatross, which can have a wingspan of 3.5 metres.
The bill of this huge seagull is long and powerful.
The albatrosses seagull(1) is the southern oceans of the world(2) where it
may sometimes travel great distances (3). One albatross, found near the Chilean
oceans(4), had a special identification tag fastened on(5) its neck which
had been put on(6) in New Zealand only 12 days earlier.In(7) that
brief time the bird had flew(8) 4800 kilometres, an average of 400 metres(9)
daily – an amazing feat of endurance.
Albatrosses(10) are capable of flying at speeds more(11) than 90 km/h. Their
outstanding ability to fly(12) and glide far better than any
other(13) bird has led to them being named(14)
'the prince of soaring birds'.
They eat(15) mainly on squid, fish, shrimp, and
other(16) creatures that are found near the ocean(17)
of the sea. They also swoop down(18) on scraps thrown overboard from ships.
Also(19) they will follow a ship for many(20) days.
Albatrosses will alight on the ocean(21) surface, but only when it is hot(22).
They visit land in the breeding only(23) for a brief time. Adult birds go(24)
out at sea for two or even(25) three years.
