This power point explains what comparing and contrasting is and why we compare and contrast. It also explains what a Venn diagram is and how to use one. The students are able to practice by watching a short video, then comparing and contrasting a giraffe and elephant. In the end, the compare and contrast text structure is explained and a link for practice texts is provided.
