FREE!!! 24 compare-contrast cards and 12 additional game cards are included in this set. A data sheet is included!
Print, cut and laminate cards. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in the middle of the group. Students take turns picking a card and explaining how the 2 items on the card are the same and how they are different. There are other fun game cards included to make the game more engaging!
You can also use these cards and writing prompts. Have your students brainstorm similarities and differences between the 2 items. They can use a simple graphic organizer to jot down their ideas, then create a simple paragraph to compare and contrast the items. This is an excellent way to help students who have difficulty coming up with ideas during open-ended journal writing activities.
