This packet includes two sets. The first set introduces the standard using pictures and basic sentences. There is the PDF of a PowerPoint, an assessment, whole group pages to use and two sets of leveled independent practice (below, on level and advanced). -- the first set is what is shown in the Preview. The second set also includes the PDF of a PowerPoint that introduces the comparing and contrasting skill (which could also be used as a review) - with short passages. The second set also includes differentiated seat work (low, middle and high) that aligns with the PowerPoint. Both of the PowerPoints provides slides in which the teacher models, guided practice slides and independent practice slides in which the students are expected to compare and contrast characters within a passage.
This activity aligns with the Common Core standard RL 1.9.
** I also have two sets available that use a Venn diagram. The first set has sentence prompts in the Venn diagram and the second does not. **
