Product Description
For this assignment, students will have read the Greek myth "Origins of the Seasons" (there is a close read activity available for purchase in my TPT store)

Students will then read an informational text that explains the scientific reason for the four seasons. They will then complete the contrast chart which will ask them to summarize the myth and the article, create 3 symbols that represent each text, and then complete a guided contrast paragraph.
* I like to copy the blank contrast chart on larger paper, so the students have more space to write/draw their symbols.
