Use this Non-Fiction Text Features Scavenger Hunt with any non-fiction article to provide students with additional practice on locating text features. With my students, I used Scholastic SCOPE magazines and allowed them to search through the articles to find examples of the listed text features.
At the end of the practice, open the floor for discussion of the importance of text features. How do text features aid us as readers? Why is it important to skim text features before we start reading? How will this practice of locating text features help us on future assessments?
