This packet includes the following:

Three Graphic Organizers

o Key Words for Comparing and Contrasting Chart

o 3 Methods for Writing a Compare and Contrast Essay

o Venn Diagram Type Organizer to Use when Comparing and Contrasting Rudolph to Frosty

Two Original Stories Based on the True Facts Behind "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman" are together in one book. The stories are in a "A Turn Around Upside Down Book" where students read the first half is the book "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" then turn the book upside down and read and the second half of the book which tells the story behind the song "Frosty the Snowman."

Students use the facts from the two stories to complete a "Compare and Contrast" organizer. The facts from the organizer are then used to write a compare and contrast essay.
