Product Description
This product contains 4 complete mini units. The activities in these units are designed to provide an interactive way for students to practice evaluating informational text to determine similarities and differences. For each mini unit, students will read 2 "Topsy Turvy" passages on related topics and complete several activities comparing and contrasting the topics. Both "Topsy Turvy" passages are printed on the same page. Students will read one passage, then rotate the paper 180 degrees to read the 2nd related passage. For each mini-unit, students will complete activities including sorting/cut and paste, labeling, creating graphic organizers, summarizing, or illustrating. Four winter related mini-units are included in this pack: Christmas in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, Western and Chinese New Year Traditions, Deciduous and Evergreen Trees, and Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. At the completion of each mini-unit, students will have a "Topsy Turvy Book" containing their completed activities. Students can read one half of their book on one of the 2 related topics, then flip the book over to read the other half of the book on the 2nd related topic. Please see the photos in the thumbnails and preview offering for examples of a completed book.
