A good way to compare and contrast animals and plants is to use a hula hoop venn diagram. This can be put on the bulletin board and can be hung up for an extended period of time and is easy to see.

The activity is extremely thorough and provides a great introduction to electric circuits for students aged 7 through 11. The Blobz Guide has five sections: What Are Circuits, Conductors and Insulators, Switches, Changing a Circuit, and Circuit Diagrams. In each section, students go through a basic information activity, a hands-on reinforcement activity, and an assessment activity.

Short informational passages to teach students how to compare and contrast - venn diagram organizer included on the sheet. Common core aligned

I LOVE THIS. Kids take two different animals and combine their adaptations to create a whole new animal, labeling each part of course. Where does the new animal live? What does it eat? Is it a predator?

Oh Man I think I need to put this in my lab!! Science Teacher Memes (Lab Safety and Science Process)

The teacher could have this venn diagram on the board and call on students to come up and come up with an idea or two and where it goes. Have class check them. JR
