The ability to compare and contrast is an important skill. It is useful in evaluating works about similar topics, arguments about positions and conclusions, deals that are being offered, and more. This collection of activity sheets will teach your students how to compare and contrast ideas, stories, and statements. In addition to evaluating whole works, your students will learn which words are used to signal either a comparison or a contrast. Answer keys are provided.
Project Idea: Have your students pull similar item descriptions from sales papers, Amazon, or other retail advertisers, and compare and contrast features, benefits, prices, and options.
