Product Description
What a fun way to teach nonfiction and fiction text features. You get two books to read and compare. Learn a bit about giraffes as well. These easy texts are written for first grade and second grade students. Students are given the opportunity to become the illustrator by drawing the pictures for the nonfiction text as well as coloring in the graphics for the fiction text.

Post reading activities are included to focus on the differences between fiction and nonfiction. Write about what information was learned. Compare and contrast the two types of text. Identify the character, setting, and events in the story.
