This activity was created to complement the story, Back to School. Students apply the skill of compare and contrast to the story. I have created an "Alike" and "Different" heading as well as cards with details from the story. Students read and place the cards under the correct heading and justify answers with the text. Great for discussing key words that appear with things that are alike and different. A student record sheet is included. Students can choose 1-2 cards to copy under alike/different, or make up their own based on the story.
