After introducing the nonfiction text features, my students participated in a scavenger hunt to find the text features within nonfiction books. My students worked in partners and each partnership was given 1 nonfiction book, but this activity may also be done by rotating through stations around the room with 1 or more books placed at each station or by walking around the classroom freely to sort through various nonfiction books that are placed on shelves and counters for a given amount of time. My class enjoyed having the opportunity to read various nonfiction books in order to find the nonfiction text features, and I'm sure yours will also! On this resource, the students search for different many key text features found in nonfiction texts, answer if the text feature is found in the book they are looking in, listing what page the text feature is found on, and a piece of evidence that students complete to show that they have found the text feature. This was an effective practice sheet and assessment for me to analyze my students' understanding of nonfiction text features. This activity was completed in a 2nd grade classroom, but can easily be used in any elementary or middle school classroom.
