See my Shark Week and Pirate Week too!
I made this to use during summer school, but they can be used during the regular school year as well.
Over 4 days, read the 4 different beach stories and focus on the following story features during the read-aloud -
After each story, have the students assist in completing a compare and contrast chart of the story features (see attached picture of my completed chart). I discuss each feature with the students and go back in the story to find the answers if necessary. Once we have discussed each feature, I post the answer on the chart for the students to reference. You can have students complete an individual comparison chart which is included in this pack if you choose.
