If you teach your children about penguins and polar bears, why not compare and contrast the two! This unit was created for just that purpose! Inside you will get a book that talks about both penguins and polar bears. I have also added a color version with real photos to project and share as well. It discusses their animal group, habitat, food, babies, and body. The book also includes a table of contents and glossary to discuss text features. I suggest bringing in other literature as well to really add more facts to the compare and contrast!

Also included is.

  • A can, have, and are chart for both
  • Opinion Survey, Pre Writing, and Writing
  • Venn Diagram, Pre-writing and Writing for Descriptive Writing
  • Informative Pre-Writing and Writing
  • Assessment Piece
  • Cards to work in groups and create comparison chart
  • Colorful cards to compare as a display
