PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Practice paired reading in fiction and nonfiction with an animal study about giraffes! This four-page activity involves reading a nonfiction passage about giraffes and then answering questions. Students are prompted to go back to the text and highlight or underline where they found the answer (or a clue for the answer, in the case of an inference). Students answer questions about vocabulary that was presented in the passage, as well as fill in missing information on a chart.

On the third page, students read a fiction story called The Flying Giraffe. They then answer questions that compare the fiction and nonfiction passages. The final page is for completing a Venn diagram to compare fiction and nonfiction text. This activity provides perfect practice for paired reading comparisons found on state tests.
