Compare and Contrast

Sisters - David McPhail

The book Sisters deals with the differences between these two sisters. I would want to use this book in my classroom to introduce compare and contrast. We would talk about how the sisters are different and alike. I would then call the students to the rug and ask them to help me complete a Vinn Diagram. The Vinn Diagram would be relating back to the story and how they are different. On one side we would talk about Sister 1 (names are not given in the story) and the other side we would discuss Sister 2. This would help the students understand comparing and contrasting and hopefully help them relate it to future books they decide to read.
