Compare and Contrast: This bundle contains 5 resources for teaching students how to compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story, by drawing on specific details in the text. For most of these resources, students will practice reading a passage, and then they will write an essay response that cites evidence from the text.
This bundle includes:
1. A 33-slide PowerPoint
2. A 4-page PowerPoint Companion Handout
3. A Compare and Contrast Craftivity
4. A Worksheet Packet containing 3 passages and prompts
(one prompt focuses on characters, one focuses on setting, and one focuses on events) This can also be used as an assessment!
5. An "I have... Who has...?" Cause and Effect Game
6. BONUS FEATURE: 5-day Lesson Plan format that I use with these materials
7. *NEWLY ADDED BONUS: 5 Compare and Contrast Historical Figures Partner Plays
(After students read each script about two historical figures, they compare and contrast the figures using a Venn diagram!)
These materials were created to specifically address Common Core State Standard RL.5.3: Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact). (The bundle can be used with multiple upper elementary and middle school grade levels, though.)
