Compare and Contrast Texts

I can compare and contrast two texts.


Review the Compare and Contrast Tool Kit by reading through it. Give examples of how clue words were used in the paragraph you read yesterday.

Turtle and Tortoise

Working in your groups, compare and contrast information in the Turtle and Tortoise article. First, read the article. Remember to look for clue words from your Compare and Contrast Tool Kit. Then, create a Venn Diagram of the ideas and facts being compared and contrast. You can choose to make a list of similarities and differences, use a Venn Diagram, use a Mobile App, or Student Interactive. To download the Mobile App or Students Interactive click on Download or Get Started to begin.

Then, using your Venn Diagram write a paragraph about the similarities and differences of turtles and tortoises. Include THREE SIMILARITIES AND THREE DIFFERENCES in your paragraph. Be ready to share your group's work.
