Using a Venn diagram to Compare & Contrast Two Types of Bears
Help younger learners understand comparing and contrasting through the exploration of bears. They will complete an attribute chart for a black bear and the bear of their choice. Then they complete a Venn Diagram for the two bears with guided instruction from the teacher. Finally, they will write sentences using their Venn Diagram information.
