I have successfully been using this visual chart with my students this year to help them list features/details of an item using at least 4 features from the chart. Included is a page of pictures you can use and a cheat sheet. Once my students are able to list features, I have introduced a comparison graphic organizer to list features that are different and the same - coming soon to TPT.
