Comparing and contrasting is a challenging reading skill. Each of these 27 cards features a short passage along with two text-dependent questions. To add more rigor, several of the cards may also require some inference for full understanding. Each passage is focused either on people, places, events, or a nonfiction topic.

Use digitally as Google Slides or Easel. Easel and Google Slides are identical. PLUS an extra Google Slides activity to utilize a Venn Diagram!

Teacher Tip

Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ "Love, love, love these! I've used these in centers and in small group intervention practice. I've used them with Venn Diagrams and T-charts...they work well for both." -Lisa H.

✏️ "I thought this was a fun activity for practicing comparing and contrasting skills with my students. I am always looking for new ways to present information. Sometimes it is hard to find activities that are not too simple for my upper elementary students. This is a great addition to my comparing and contrasting unit. Thank you!" -Lindsay M.

✏️ "These task cards were awesome! Was able to use a card as a warm up for students and in centers. The cards also promote critical thinking, which is a huge plus! Thanks!!" -Jade F.
