This is a collection of graphic organizers for students to use when comparing and contrasting two animals. There is a cover page, describing the job of researching two different animals. It includes a list of guiding questions, such as:
What are their sizes and shapes?
Where do they live and what are their habitats like?
What behaviors do they have?
There are two charts and three venn diagrams. The other pages are spaces for students to reflect on the graphic organizers with writing. You can use all of these for extended reports, or part of them for shorter reports. As a modification, I have had students glue these in writing journals, in the order they plan on using for their written piece. They can do their editing and revising on the graphic organizers, then simply publish on lined paper!
Please rate me if you have time. Thanks for visiting!
