This freebie is a great way to introduce your students to the problem and solution nonfiction text structure. Students will practice identifying this text structure in sentences, short paragraphs, and a longer text.
Students will complete activities that will help them develop a good foundation with problem and solution, making it easier for them to distinguish between this text structure and other nonfiction text structures.
This free resource includes:
- a page where students are introduced to the problem and solution text structure and fill in a graphic organizer
- two pages where students determine whether or not sentences have a problem and solution text structure or not
- a cut and paste activity where students determine whether or not short paragraphs have a problem and solution text structure or not
- a one page reading passage that follows a problem and solution text structure with questions
The complete addresses 5 nonfiction text structures and provides plenty of additional activities for students to identify the text structure in a variety of different texts. It is designed for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students that are being introduced to the different text structures, but 6th or 7th grade students that are struggling with this skill could also benefit.
An answer key is included.
