Compare and Contrast with a Fire Engine Freebie!

1. It's almost Fire Prevention Week.
2. Our kids LOVE fire engines!
3. You're teaching comparing and contrasting.

What's one got to do with the other?

The freebie that I'm sharing today, that's what! 
Like most skills that we teach, comparing and contrasting requires lots of conversational give-and-take for our students to have understanding and control, and be able to apply beyond our directed lessons. Here are two printable pages that you can also use on your SMARTboard or doc camera, discussing the language and details of making comparisons. Their timeliness for Fire Prevention Week 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 here or on the picture above to download from Google Drive.

Looking for more compare and contrast lessons like this one? Here's a set of 50 printable pictures and graphic organizers. The download also includes a PowerPoint format, so you can use them on your interactive board or your students can use them on laptops and handheld devices. Click to see them at my TPT store.

Happy Teaching!
