This is a zip file with two different work sheets in PDF format that can be used to compare and contrast two different informational articles.
The first is two pages and is a generic worksheet that can be used with any two articles picked by the teacher. It compares and contrasts the main idea..
The second is also two pages and is also a generic worksheet that can be used to compare two different articles about the same large event or a short memoir or bibliography.
I use these as reading center activities and set the worksheets out with two articles. They can also be used to teach the basics of comparing and contrasting two articles.
