This product includes several nonfiction texts for each of the following subjects - sea otters, kelp forests, elf owls, deserts, crocodiles, Florida Everglades, tree frogs, rain forests. There is also a graphic organizer so the students can compare the texts after reading them. The graphic organizer allows the students to compare up to four texts. The students can compare the texts' topic, text structure, author's purpose, details and conclusions. I use several of the texts whole class and compare them as a group. Then I let the students choose an animal and ecosystem packet to compare with a partner. I then have the students use the texts to help them to do some of the research needed for their animal and ecosystem reports. Included in this product is also a chart with sentence frames to help your English Language Learners compare the texts.
