Help students learn to compare and contrast two stories on the same topic.
Three sets of stories and an assessment are included. Each set has two versions of a story on the same topic or about the same character. The stories may have different morals, settings, events and characters’ responses. Both stories and activities are focused on the 2nd and 3rd grade standards.
This unit is designed to supplement regular classroom instruction and provide practice with close reading skills. Depending on reading level, most stories and activities would take around 30 minutes per day for 5 days. Story sets can stand alone or the stories can be done as a whole unit. The stories would also work well for review in small group situations. I have included a poster to use while discussing how to compare and contrast.
There is an assessment piece included. Three sets of two paragraphs are followed by questions comparing and contrasting settings, events, characters and morals.
