This Comparing and Connecting Texts packet was created as a resource for helping to teach the common reading standards of informational text. In this standard students are asked to describe the connections between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information. This resource provides a page with two texts with information that can be compared and then connected.
This set includes 10 pages, each page has two short stories that can be compared. They were purposely kept short in order to fit them on one page and to allow students the opportunity to quickly read stories that can be compared. While the stories are short, the vocabulary is intended to be rich and somewhat challenging.
