This packet is a complete unit to teach the Compare and Contrast text structure. There are 3 graphic organizers where your students will compare and contrast 2 everyday topics. The next activity is a set of task cards with 2 similar paragraphs and a set of multiple mark questions. 3 short passages follow where your students read a page long text and complete a compare and contrast graphic organizer and evidence based questions. Finally there are 2 long passages with close reading questions, graphic organizers, and written response questions. The nonfiction text will be interesting to your students and the activities are engaging! There are plenty of examples for each type of activities. You will be able to introduce the text structure and gradually increase the level of difficulty as your students master the text structure and then have extra examples to review the text structure throughout the year! You can't miss with this packet!
