PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

48 Compare and Contrast Task Cards
- 24 Short Story Cards with Questions.
- 24: Comparative Writing Prompts (using prior knowledge).
- Student Answer Sheet
- Answer Key (provided for short story response; not necessary for prior knowledge prompt)
- 2 products for the price of one!

All 48 task cards come in full page and task card (1/4 page) format to suit your printable and PowerPoint/Projector needs!

**Instead of boring text excerpts, many of these task cards features a fictional anecdote to teach values and EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.**

Use these 48 open response task cards to practice making comparisons and finding contrast (along with inferencing and paraphrasing skills). The short story response task cards are ideal for practice and test prep (Grade 3-6).

If you want some or all of your students to go a little deeper, have them use the writing prompt task cards to use prior knowledge to find comparisons and contrasts. This second set of cards is perfect for paragraph or full essay writing for middle and even high school students!

All cards can be answered either orally or on notebook paper.

A student answer sheet and answer key is also included but can be used with lined paper or a writers notebook for more thorough paragraph or essay development. These tasks are perfect for differentiation and scaffolded assignments, and will work well for reading strategy centers, literacy centers, writing workshop, stations, partner work, or whole class review.


These cards will print in color or grayscale. Simply print and cut. Print on card stock or laminate to use them again and again. You can store and distribute cards using a baggie, or you can hole-punch each card and put them on ring/string.
