This Grade One Language Arts lesson plan introduces students to Venn Diagrams as a tool for comparison and contrast, following read alouds of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'Somebody and the Three Blairs' (a variation of the traditional fairytale). It encourages students to look for similarities and differences between the two stories, and to record these in their Venn Diagrams with picture boxes (included).
The lesson plan includes the outcomes and objectives covered and materials needed. It breaks down the lesson plan step by step in great detail, from introduction to closure, and includes questions for discussion.
The lesson includes a Venn Diagram worksheet, a picture box sheet, an enlarged picture box sheet for teacher use and an assessment checklist.
