- Product Description
This engaging study guide activity pack includes two foldable activity options related to nonfiction text features.
ACTIVITY 1: Introduction to Text Features Study Guide- 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.
ACTIVITY 2- Book Identification Study Guide- I use this as a followup 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.
This product also includes detailed instructions (with photos!!) for your students to follow. It also includes a teacher instruction page that lists the exact materials you need to prepare for this craftivity.
Be sure to check out the PREVIEW, as it shows ALL of the pages included in this resource. Also, on page 7 of the preview, I explain how I add color to the project since I print the copies in the copy machine that only has black and white ink.
********This resource is available in two formats:
1. Traditional Printables- Print the PDF and distribute paper copies to your students to complete.
2. TpT Digital Activity- With this format, an interactive layer has been added to the original PDF!** This paperless version uses text boxes so that your students can complete it on a device. You can assign it to your students via Google Drive, and they can return it to you to review. Click on the Getting Started Guide to learn more about this version of the activity!
