PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint lesson introduces the concept of Comparing and Contrasting with a simple classification exercise. It defines each term, points out that similar points of comparison are required, and lists points of comparison commonly used to compare and contrast objects, characters, places, and events. Two graphic organizers are introduced and modeled, the Venn diagram and double-bubble diagram.

The lesson goes on to model writing applications – demonstrating point-by-point, whole-to-whole, and similarities-to-differences Compare and Contrast text structures. Students are challenged to compare and contrast characters in a video fable, The Ant and the Cricket (links to YouTube video). An example diagram is provided for review.

Finally, students are tasked with writing their own compare and contrast paragraph, and if you wish to delve deeper, to compare a second text version of this fable to the video version. Student handouts of the text version of the fable can be printed directly from the presentation. 38 pages of material in all.
