PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Informational Text Structures Craftivity: This engaging activity puts a fun spin on learning nonfiction text structures and includes 15 passages! I created it after a teacher wrote to me, asking me to recreate my upper elementary informational text structure craftivity for second and third graders.

The finished product makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display! It can even be used as a valuable addition to your students' interactive notebooks!

This resource includes 15 total passages- 5 passages related to teeth, 5 passages related to alligators, and 5 passages related to the Statue of Liberty.

I split this activity into two days.
Day 1- students read the 15 passages and determine the informational text structure of each passage:
→ Sequence
→ Compare and Contrast
→ Cause and Effect
→ Problem and Solution
→ Description

When they finish, they turn it in for you to check the passages. (Therefore, this activity can even be used as an assessment!)

Day 2- students assemble the craftivity. They color the clipboards, cut out the clipboards and passages, and glue them to construction paper.

This product includes detailed instructions (with photos) for your students to follow. It also includes a teacher instruction page.

********************************************************************
I also have a 3rd grade-friendly informational text structure flipbook! It contains 10 passages, and space for students to write their own text structure passages. Check it out here! {CLICK HERE to check it out!}

My Nonfiction Text Structure Powerpoint is another resource in my store that might serve as a useful introduction to text structures. ***If you choose to purchase the 3rd grade flipbook and 3rd grade craftivity, I will send you this PowerPoint for free. Just email me at ddrotz2000@gmail.com and attach a receipt showing your purchases of the items listed above. ***
