Students have so many opportunities to compare and contrast numerous items across all content areas. These matrixes were created to be versatile for the teacher and students so they can be adapted to the circumstance as needed. Included are examples, a labeled version, and a blank version. Examples could be shown on the SMART board. Labeled ones and blank ones could be used to model for students or could be printed for them to use on their own. I hope you and your students find these useful!
