Here are 32 short passage cards to help students identify different types of informational text structures. Five text structures are used: description, sequence (sometimes 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.
