Learning Objective

Students will match text feature images to the correct terms.


Nonfiction Text Feature Concentration Game: This is a hands-on game your students can play with a partner or small group to practice 24 text features commonly found in nonfiction text. Images of text features are on 24 cards. Students must find the matching text feature term. It includes 24 pairs (48 cards).

It comes in two formats: print and digital. Choose the format that is best for your students!

  1. Teachers who choose the traditional print format will print a set of cards for each small group. Students will cut apart the cards, turn them facedown, and then take turns trying to uncover matches. When all of the cards have been matched, students count their cards to determine the winner.
  2. The newer digital format is an Easel Activity. It is set up to be a game that students can play individually or with a partner. Students are presented with a text feature image, and they must uncover the card that labels the text feature.
