How have you used a venn diagram to compare and contrast a story? In HM next week, it shows using a venn diagram to compare/contrast a story and I was trying to figure out what stories to compare. We have already compared different Three Little Pig stories earlier in the year, which I know people have used in the past. On Tuesday I was going to have them compare a story using the diagram and then on Thursday I was going to have them compare/contrast something using a different way. Any suggestions on that too?
I thought about making a venn diagram with construction paper and having them match the parts of a story, but we don't have a laminator at our school and have to go to a place that's only open till 5. (And I'd only have Monday to do it.)
i have used hula hoops and sentence strips for a venn diagram. i explain that each hoop represents a character and that we are going to compare and contrast the characters. I also go into what a venn diagram is and what we use them for and have them help me lay the hoops down ther correct way.
You could compare and contrast
Goldilocks and Leona and the Honeybears
Three Little Pigs and the True Story of the Three Little Pigs
Twas the night before Christmas and the Cajun Night before Christmas.
A top hat organizer looks like a top hat. The base of the hat is where the children write what the two items have in common and the smaller upper part is where the children write what are the differences. I hope I explained it well.
