Text Features Scavenger Hunt!

Here is a cute idea that will give second graders a way to show what they know about text features commonly found in informational texts. First, they match the text feature cards to their definitions, then they make a text feature book. Each of the common text features is listed on a small half-sized page, then children find actual examples from real books, cut them out, and paste them in their own personal reference guides. Tip: Have each student bring in one informational textbook from home to use for the project.
