  • Product Description
  • Standards

Here are 32 short passage cards to help students identify different types of informational text structures. Five text structures are used: description, sequence (sometime called chronological), compare and contrast, cause and effect, and problem and solution. Each card features a short informational paragraph (with signal words and phrases included) and a choice of text structures. There is also a Challenge Card that can be used with any other card in the set which asks students to explain how they found the correct answer.

Black line versions of the cards are also included for printing on colored paper.

In addition, there is handout/poster explaining the five structures, as well as a student answer sheet and answer key so that students can check their work. These task cards will work well for test prep, reading strategy centers, partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
