This product was created to assist our students with understanding the varying types and purpose of different graphic features nonfiction authors use in informational text.
Included in this purchase is our reader’s notebook booklet that provides an introduction or review of nonfiction features and purpose of each. This lesson typically takes 45 minutes. We also place several informational texts on student’s tables to help visually show a representation of specific features.
Next, a guided practice with a text feature scavenger hunt. This lesson is broken into two days. We place baskets of informational texts around the room. The students partner up and work on finding text features and also provide their thinking on the purpose.
Finally, we included an independent activity to help you assess where individual students are.
