Our Comparing and Contrasting (Grades 4-6) lesson plan prepares students to compare and contrast characters, events, points of view, and other elements found in a story and in other reading content. This lesson encourages peer discussion to spur brainstorming and allows the opportunity for students to draft an introductory paragraph and to make inferences from text. Successful completion of this lesson develops reading comprehension, critical thinking skills, and written expression. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to compare and contrast several objects in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare and contrast characters, events, points of view, and other elements found in a story and in other reading content.

    Great comparison stories.

    I was very happy with the 2 short stories given for the compare/contrast activities. It is very hard to find short stories to do for this activity.
