2.0 Reading Comprehension: Students read and understand grade-level-appropriate material. They draw upon a variety of comprehension strategies as needed (e.g., generating and responding to essential questions, making predictions, comparing information from several sources).
Objective: Today we will learn to compare and contrast information in expository text.
When you compare and contrast, think about what things are the same about your topic and what things are different.
We call these similarities and differences.
Ostriches are the biggest birds in the entire world. Adult males are about eight feet tall. They have really long and skinny necks. Their necks alone are three feet long! Not only are these birds tall, they are also very heavy. Males can weigh nearly 300 pounds! Females, or hens, are usually smaller.
Puffins are small sea birds. Like penguins, they wear colors of black and white. Puffins are much smaller than penguins. They are about the size of a pigeon. They have large beaks. In fall and winter, the beak and feet are drab gray. In the spring, their beaks and feet become brightly colored.
For the next activity, you will go to your own screen. Read the short passage about two animals of your choice. Then fill in your T-chart noting similarities and differences.
When you finish, you can send me a message in the chat and we can go over your ideas together.
