With this fun and current topic activity, students will be able to work on their compare and contrast skills in an exciting and interesting way! Students will compare and contrast two current female singers. While reading biographies on each singer, students will take notes on each singer. From there, they will write a compare and contrast four paragraph essay on their differences and similarities.
This lesson includes daily lesson plan outline (8 days), anchor charts with transition words, singer biographies, Venn diagrams, final draft paper with both singers, and blank Venn diagrams and final draft paper.
This compare and contrast activity is a great way to get students ready for CCS Writing 5.9.A-Apply grade 5 Reading standards to literature (e.g., Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or a drama, drawing on specific details in the text [e.g., how characters interact]).
