Product Description
This resource is designed to provide reference guides and practice for students in the creation of a Venn diagram and the writing of a compare and contrast essay.

PLEASE NOTE: This resource is also included in my "Less Mess" Nonfiction/Informational Text Interactive Notebook Activities.

First, the class will receive and discuss a sample Venn diagram. After discussion, students will use the example as a guide to create their own Venn diagrams.

Next, students will receive a compare and contrast essay completed using the sample Venn diagram. The class will discuss various parts and color code them, such as:

-topic sentence of essay
-topic sentence of comparison paragraph
-comparison signal/transition words
-sequence signal/transition words
-topic sentence of contrast paragraph
-contrast signal/transition words
-concluding sentence of the essay

Keep in mind that the essay will be quite simple. This resource is designed to help students understand the basic format of a Venn diagram and compare/contrast essay. I then help my students work toward fleshing out their essays with additional detail and more complex form.

Included pages are:
1. Suggested timeline of activities
2. Venn Diagram sample
3. Blank Venn diagram (for student use)
4. Compare/Contrast Essay sample
5. Sample of color-coded essay after class discussion
6. Blank essay page (for student use)

Please view the thumbnails to see some sample pages.
