About the Text Structures Activity

This reading center resource includes 15 text structure puzzles to practice determining texts structures of nonfiction text.

Two different direction versions are included to help you best use this resource for your students.

Version 1: The students will read each text, write the text structure, and then find the puzzle piece that shows the text structure of the text.

Version 2: This version is identical to Version 1, except that the students will record their evidence on the recording sheets.

Directions and specific recording sheets for the different versions can be found following the puzzle pieces.

About the Digital Text Structures Puzzles

For the digital version, the students will read three texts per slide. They will match the correct text structure card to the text that uses that text structure. They will not use all of the cards on a slide and the same text structure will be used twice on one of the slides.

To make this text structure activity work in a digital format, the template has been modified and reimaged for optimal digital use.

This digital text structures activity has been created for use with Google Slides. Please see the preview to see the digital text structure puzzles.
