This packet includes 2 activities and 1 quiz over Author's Purpose. The activities include directions and a page for students to use as they sort books, magazines, newspapers, recipes (whatever resources you want to use) into the various categories. The second activity uses Peppermint Patties to highlight the differences among the three categories. Includes a foldable for students once they've brainstormed their details. The quiz gives short scenarios which students must read in order to identify the Author's Purpose for writing the piece of text.
