There are 12 task cards to help your students practice the skill of comparing and contrasting text. The students will read the paragraph on the task card, and then they will decide how the two topics are alike and different.
There are 3 types of recording sheets in this file. You can have the students record their answers on one of these recording sheets, or you can just discuss the cards in a class discussion or a small group.
Task cards can be used in many ways. They are great for literacy centers, small reading groups, or independent work for students.
