Compare and Contrast with a Fire Engine Freebie!

Hello, Teaching Friends!
 
Have you seen this cute idea on Pinterest for comparing and contrasting?
 

 

 
 
Look at these diagonal character Venn diagrams from Just Add Clip Art. Sooo cute ... and think of the possibilities for turning this into a glyph activity, too, using hair color, shoes, socks, eye color, etc.
 
I love the graphic look of the diagonal papers. Think of the possibilities of this same design done with seasonal themes!
 
scarecrows
jack-o-lanterns
fire dogs
turkeys
Pilgrims
 
 
 
 
Of course, like most skills we teach, conversational give-and-take is a huge part of gaining understanding and control. Here are two pages that you can use on your SMARTboard or doc camera, discussing the language and details of making comparisons. Their timeliness for Fire Prevention Month should keep interest high!
 
 
My husband and I were in Wildwood Crest, NJ, recently at the same time as the statewide gathering of firefighters. Talk about photo opportunities! So here are a few of the engines we saw, put into compare and contrast format for you!
 
 
 
 

Just click on the picture to download from Google docs.
