This is a sample passage from my best selling comparing and contrasting nonfiction passages. You can find the full product by clicking the link below:
Comparing and Contrasting Passages
Each passage has 4 multiple choice questions that ask about comprehension, recalling details, and comparing/contrasting.
I have also included ways to differentiate this activity and ideas on how to use it. You can even just use the passages to help tie in nonfiction text into your common core lessons!
*Please note that these passages are a little more complex. For that reason I think they are appropriate for grades 3-5. I have listed the item for grades 2-5 because they could possibly be used with higher 2nd graders or with teacher support (for 2nd or lower 3rd graders). You know your students best!
