compare/contrast idea

One of my observations was to compare adn contrast two stories. The students really liked this idea. My students and I read the two stories at a previous time, duringthe observation we created two class story maps (one on each story) then we joined together on the rug and created a venn diagram, made out of two hula hoops. Every student had a popsicle stick with story 1, one with story 2, and one with a picture from both stories (I used images from google and/or amazon). I also labeled the "Venn Diagram" with the story names. Then I created little phrases... ex. nonfiction. When I held up the word/phrase the students had to pick up the correct popsicle stick adn then I picked one person to put the word/phrase in the correct hula hoop area. The students really like this. It was a different way to teach compare/contrast. The only thing that I stress is that you have the students to understand that the popsicle sticks are tools and not toys! Good luck!
