Are you tapped out of ideas on how to teach Compare & Contrast to your students? Make it fun, easy, and interactive with this WEEK long set of activities, both print and digital! This resource includes 5 days worth of lesson plans and activities, graphic organizer, craftivity, centers & more! Take a look at the preview for more details!
Lesson 1: Students are becoming exposed to the keywords often found in compare and contrast texts. Students will read short sentences with missing keywords and determine what the missing keyword is as well as if the sentence is showing compare or contrast.
Lesson 2: Students analyze short sentences to determine if they are modeling compare or contrast. Students will cut and glue the pieces onto a sorting mat.
Lesson 3: Students evaluate information written into a Venn Diagram about a given text. Some of the information in the diagram is correct and some is not. Students must read the text and determine which information needs to be changed.
Lesson 4: Students will read a short text and organize information into a Venn Diagram. Some of the information is given to them and some they must create from the text. This is a cut and glue activity!
Lesson 5: Students get to apply their knowledge of compare and contrast by reading short fiction and nonfiction texts, color code the information in the text based on the key and fill in the Venn Diagram.
All activities are more hands-on than normal ‘worksheets’. Direction pages and real photographs are also included! A graphic organizer, bookmark, anchor chart, craftivity, & center are all also included!
Digital activities included are designed for Google Classroom, Google Slides, and PowerPoint.
