Are you looking for higher level thinking and learning activities for your students to do at centers when they're not with you? I've created "The Venn Center"...where students compare and contrast two similar but different things, people, food or animals. There are 16 weeks of centers here. A mini-lesson with an attributes anchor chart included and 16 center signs, one for each week.
Each sheet will compare the following:
*maple leaf and oak leaf
*blueberries and blackberries
*strawberries and raspberries
*peanuts and potatoes
*pumpkins and oranges
*apples and oranges
*carrots and peas
*dogs and cats
*leopards and lions
*chicks and piglets
*American New Year and Chinese New Year
*Thanksgiving and Christmas
*Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong
*feathers and dragonfly wings
*clay pot and glass bottle
*umbrellas and hats
Can be used within a unit study, as a mini-research project or stand alone thinking activity.
This center was created to be printed on legal size paper, 8-1/2 x 14. Thank you for looking, purchasing or adding to your wishlist.
Colleen...thank you! Your feedback and comment mean the world to me! I'm THRILLED to be in the company of the top sellers, *never* imagined, but it feels really good. Will have a new Kindergarten critical thinking center out next week, and a vocabulary center right behind it. Thanks, I appreciate it! Jen❤

I've always loved sorting as an independent activity because it requires students to think deeply. This is will an awesome addition to my resources. Thanks!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Thank you for sharing your Comparing and Contrasting unit! I just printed it and the edges are cut off, it looks like it enlarged from the original. I am using a PC and tried printing on two different printers. Do you know what I can try to get it to print correctly?
Are you printing it on legal size paper, 8 1/2 x 14? In your printer settings, You must also change it to legal size to print it out. I'm sorry you've wasted printer ink trying to get it right. Let me know. :-)
