This worksheet is a personal favorite of mine. Using a perspective piece, students write down five facts about an idea or event, then draw a picture to help understand the concepts. This is especially useful for ELL students or students or struggling readers.
Some examples are comparing capitalism and socialism in social studies, comparing different literary genres for English (i.e.novel versus biography), or comparing different elements in science. You can even use this form for math, comparing division and subtraction for lower levels, or different properties of shapes for geometry. This is also good for comparing characters in novels.
I generally give this to students, and after they have completed it I make my own on the board, complete with a cheesy drawing. Sentence frames can be added to support different populations.
