Just because books are about the same topic, doesn’t mean they include the same information! This worksheet uses a Venn diagram to help students compare and contrast information they learn from two books about the same topic.
In this lesson, students learn about Chantal Petit-Clerc, a Paralympian who lost her legs at the young age of 13. After reading about her struggles and perseverance, your writers will develop biographies of other heroes they know.
This worksheet focuses on finding details within a nonfiction text. First students will read a short paragraph, then they'll answer questions using words from the text before rewording their answers to make them unique.
The more students read about a topic, the more they’ll become experts! Help kids embrace their expert status by having them recommend books to friends. They'll write a letter recommending at least two different books, sharing what makes each unique.
