Here is a perfect craft for a literacy center when you are working on the comprehension skill of comparing and contrasting. I completed this craft and writing activity with my second grade class. I used Benchmark Literacy this year. Unit 8 works on the skill of comparing and contrasting. I used this craftivity as a review of what we had learned through the unit.
The Tulip is a perfect venn diagram! My students were given a partner to compare themselves with. I took pictures and they glued a picture of themselves and their partner to their activity. You could just write names if you do not want to use pictures. The set includes the flower printables, a rough draft form, and a writing frame. After my students completed their tulip venn diagrams, they filled in the rough draft. Following a peer editing session, they wrote their final copies on the writing form. A large piece of construction paper to glue all the parts should be provided by the teacher. The set includes examples of finished products.
