This engaging study guide resource includes a foldable activity related to nonfiction text features.

VERSION 1: Introduction to Text Features Study Guide (Printable)- I use this as an introduction activity. I give each student a packet, and I place my own copy under the doc camera. We go through each text feature presented and write a sentence that explains how it helps the reader comprehend the book. (A key is included for teacher guidance, if desired.) Then we assemble the accordion book (using the student-friendly directions included) and tape it into our interactive notebooks.

VERSION 2- Book Identification Study Guide (Printable)- I use this as a follow-up activity. It is a lot like a nonfiction text feature scavenger hunt, but it provides picture supports. Students look for the given text features in their own nonfiction book. When they find a text feature, they indicate the page number and write a brief summary below the page number.

VERSION 3- Google Slides Activity (Digital) - This digital version combines the two activities. Each Google Slide contains two text features. Below each text feature and image, students write an explanation of how it helps a reader. Near the bottom of each slide, there is a text box where students can identify the title of a book and the page number where they found the given text feature.
