This is a 1st Grade Level Reading Skills Assessment I created on the topic of Comparing and Contrasting. Depending on the time of year this test is used, the teacher can choose to read the test aloud or not to the students. The questions require the students to use higher order thinking and are based on 1st grade Common Core Standards. This test was created in order to meet the rigor of Common Core Standards. The use of a Venn Diagram is encouraged.
