Comparing and contrasting are critical ELA skills.
Take a break from comparing and contrasting two passages.
Instead compare and contrast PICTURES. You and your students will analyze a portrait of Princess Diana and her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Then, your students will analyze a portrait of Queen Victoria and two of her grandchildren from the 1800s. How is each royal family presented? How have royal portraits changed over the last century? The answers might surprise you!
This fun-filled unit culminates in a compare and contrast essay.
