After reading and re-reading these books with different aspects (food, activities, clothing, etc.), we looked at them with the BIG picture in mind.. what information can you get from both of them so that we can learn as much as we can?
I used my graphic organizers to help the students keep their thoughts in order from the first book to the second. Using the different colors helped them to see what came from the first, the second, and both books. Venn diagrams (at this point) are a tad confusing to them. How funny is that?
If you want to grab these organizers for yourself, you can grab them below:
