Learning Objective

Students will use these to identify common nonfiction text features they encounter while reading.


Use these 23 posters to introduce your students to the 23 important nonfiction text features. Then, use the matching worksheet to check for understanding.

The nonfiction text features include:

→ Title page

→ Table of Contents

→ Index

→ Glossary

→ Guide Words

→ Heading

→ Subheading

→ Bold Words

→ Words in Italics

→ Bullet Points

→ Text box

→ Hyperlink

→ Photograph

→ Illustration

→ Caption

→ Diagram

→ Labels

→ Cutaway

→ Close-up

→ Map

→ Timeline

→ Charts and Graphs

→ Table

(Note! These are the same images as the ones I used in my Nonfiction Text Feature PowerPoint.)

After you have introduced the text features using the posters, distribute the matching worksheet. (The posters and the worksheet are available in two formats: traditional printables and through Google Slides.)

After students finish identifying the text features on the printable worksheet, students can cut around the images and glue the into their interactive notebooks for future reference!
