The first big one that we make is comparing fiction and non-fiction. It kind of hits two standards at once.
Here are some examples that we created together.
Remember, once we create these anchor charts together, students are then able to create some with a partner. One activity that we did was to compare themselves with their partners. Also, they could compare themselves to a character in a book that you read. Everyone's diagrams will be unique. Eventually, I use some of the short passages from the Compare and Contrast book that I mentioned using in the Compare and Contrast Workstations to use as an assessment to determine whether students are understanding the concept of comparing and contrasting or not.
