Learning Objective

Using signal words or other clues from the text, students will read twenty nonfiction passages and identify the text structure used by the author.

Description

This engaging activity puts a fun spin on learning informational text structures! It features twenty nonfiction passages: five passages related butterflies, five passages related to bacteria, five passages related to basketball, and five passages related to apples. This resource includes two formats: print and digital with TpT Easel.

PRINTABLE CRAFTIVITY VERSION:

I split this activity into two days.

Day 1- Students read the 20 passages and determine the informational text structure of each passage:

→ Sequence

→ Compare and Contrast

→ Cause and Effect

→ Problem and Solution

→ Description

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. 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!

TPT DIGITAL EASEL VERSION- This is a paperless version that can be completed on a device. Each slide contains one reading passage written on a chalkboard and five graphic organizers that represent each text structure. Students read the passage and move the appropriate graphic organizer to the open area at the bottom of the chalkboard.
