Description

I love bringing history into language arts and hitting two content areas at once! This read-and-sort activity is a great way for students to practice identifying organizational patterns for nonfiction text while reviewing what they've learned about Virginia’s geography and native peoples. Use this activity for review, homework/classwork, or even assessment!

A digital version that students can complete in Google Slides™ is also included.

To complete the activity, students will read 5 different paragraphs and decide which text structure each uses. If you like, you can partner students or have them work in small groups. They can glue the paragraphs to the included worksheet or use the headings instead for a reusable center activity.

The nonfiction text structures included are:

  • cause and effect
  • compare/contrast
  • problem/solution
  • chronological order
  • description

What's Included:

  • 5 short paragraphs
  • sorting worksheet
  • sorting headings
  • answer key
  • digital version in Google Slides (with answer key)

This resource supports Virginia Studies VS.2 and Virginia Reading SOL 5.6, but can be used with any curriculum.
