Your students will have a blast identifying the difference between fiction and nonfiction with this set of four hands-on sort activities. These are great for use during whole group instruction, small groups, and reading centers.

Fiction vs Non-Fiction Activities Included:

Pocket Chart Sorting Activity – Students read the sentences and sort the cards under the heading Fiction or Non-Fiction. Students can also sort on a table underneath the headers.

Write/Read the Room – Students read the sentences you have posted around the room and look at the pictures on each card. They decide whether the idea is fiction or non-fiction and select the correct sheet to record their answers.

Book Cover/Magazine Picture Sort – Use this sorting page for students to sort pictures they cut out from reading club magazines or other magazines to show fiction and non-fiction.

Book Search and Sort - Students search the classroom library or books at home and find three fiction and three nonfiction books and write the titles in the lines provided. Perfect for literacy rotations.
