Practice compare and contrast with this set of 50 engaging picture sets and graphic organizers with discussion questions. They're a great way to teach your students how to explain differences, describe connections, and identify basic similarities and differences.

This set includes two formats:

* 50 printable full page cards, great for use in small groups in your classroom, or with literacy intervention groups as you teach and model comparing and contrasting.

* A 50-slide PowerPoint presentation to use on your interactive board or for individual student use on a laptop or a handheld device.

Try using one picture set every day or do several on one day each week. Focused practice comparing and contrasting will give your students the ability and confidence they need to apply this skill across the curriculum, into math, science, art, cultural studies, and more!

These are also great for use in ESL classes and for Speech and Language teachers!

There are also 3 printable pages included which can be used for individual assessments.
