Product Description
I have found that when students make comparisons using the short stories in their anthologies, four things happen:

1. The temptation to copy another student’s work (either in class or on the Internet!) is eliminated.
2. Students enjoy the amusing images that some of the comparisons bring into the assignment.
3. Learning increases because minds become stretched to the limits of their imagination.
4. Students may need to research the characteristics of the comparison item before beginning the assignment – a bonus objective met!

This comparison chart activity can be used with any grade, but is optimum for grades 3-8.

This is more than a comparison between two short stories - it forces the comparison between a character and a giraffe or a refrigerator!
