Compare and Contrast
We ended our Compare and Contrast Unit today by starting off with a plate of YUMMY Cuties! Then we went around in a circle and each student had to compare and contrast this delicious, little fruit with a fruit given to them by another student. So they had to compare between a kiwi and a tangerine, a banana and a tangerine, an orange and a tangerine, a raspberry and a tangerine, etc. The final compare and contrast was to compare and contrast an orange and a tangerine.
When we finished, and everyone was successful in their attempts to give one way they are the same and one way they are different, each student got to specifically describe (contrasting at a higher level) which tangerine they would like to eat. Of course, we ended with the tangy taste of citrus in our mouths! A TASTY LESSON!
