Let's Chart It

Gator or croc? Frog or toad? Mushroom or toadstool? How are they alike? How do they differ? Alaska’s Three Bears, by Shelley Gill, prompts a study of the different characteristics of commonly confused plants and animals. Class members use a data chart to record salient characteristics. A great list of informational texts that could be used, as well as teacher directions, chart template, and an answer key are included.
