Bat Loves the Night by Nicola Davies is a wonderful book to help students build the skill of comparing and contrasting while also developing an understanding of text features and author's purpose.
I have created this resource to introduce text features to students (caption words and main body text) and a discussion point of author's purpose. The story is a great mentor text for informational narratives.
This resource includes:
Compare/contrast narratives and expository
Compare/contrast two texts (Stellaluna and Bat Loves the Night) *supporting CCSS RI.7 identify basic similarities in and differences between two texts on the same topic (e.g., in illustrations, descriptions, or procedures).
Fact vs. Opinion worksheet
True or False worksheet
Fact Finder worksheet
Five writing prompts (narrative and expository writing)
Two different story lined paper to differentiate writing
