PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for an activity to go with the 2016 Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Nominee, Gaston, by Kelly DiPicchio?

It's such a great book, but I couldn't find many activities to go with it. So, I decided to make one of my own! This activity comes with a comparison sheet that students use in their response journal or on a separate sheet of lined paper. It also comes with enlarged categories that teachers can glue down to chart paper to create a whole class activity that mimics the student sheet.

What do students do?
Glue or staple down the left side of the comparison chart to a lined piece of paper. Then cut the dotted lines. This creates three separate flaps. Behind each flap students write statements about what's unique about Gaston's family and Antoinette's family. Then, they write about what they both share in common under the both flap.

I love doing comparisons this way since it gives students ample lines to write on instead of trying to fit their thoughts into a venn diagram. This would be a great precursor to students writing a comparative essay, too!
