PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Compare and Contrast

Compare & Contrast Writing with Non-Fiction Texts is sure to help bring out the best writer in your middle grades student.

This extensive 99 page resource is jam-packed with material that will help you guide your students thinking as they learn to craft excellent compare and contrast responses to non-fiction texts.

Teaching kids to effectively compare and contrast two different ideas, characters, passages, or bodies of information can be a challenge. Given the limited amount of time we have in the classroom and the seemingly endless amount of content to cover, I like to “tie together” the curriculum as much as possible as to maximize my efforts and student learning. That being said, I have found that using short non-fiction passages to teach kids to compare and contrast is very effective.

This resource includes

TEACHER NOTES ~ LESSON PLANS
PRINTABLES ~ ORGANIZERS ~
10 NON-FICTION PASSAGES ~ FOLDABLE ACTIVITIES ~ SCAFFOLDED NOTES ~ PRACTICE SHEETS AND MORE

Non-Fiction Topics Addressed

The Maya Vs. The Aztec
The Mayflower vs. The Nina, Pinta & the Santa Maria
The New England Colonies vs. The Southern Colonies
Jamestown vs. Plymouth
Native Americans in the Southwest Desert vs. Native Americans from the Northwest coast
