Build Background-Compare and Contrast

Irwin was a quiet, shy turtle who lived in the brush at the edge of the pond. His best friend, Shania, was an outgoing, bubbly goldfish who lived in the pond. The two became friends last year when Shania introduced herself to Irwin as he sunned himself on the bank of the pond. Never a day went by that the two didn’t see each other and swim together. They often had scavenger hunts in the pond, which was their favorite game to play.

Compare and contrast continued

Compare and Contrast Continued!

This story is about Irwin and Shania. In some ways these friends are similar and I some ways they differ. Irwin and Shania both like to swim. That is a similarity, so I just compared the two friends. Irwin is a turtle, but Shania is a goldfish. This is a difference so I just contrasted the two friends.

Now with your partner compare and contrast other items from this passage.
