Compare and Contrast We did a little warm up activity by completing a paper plate venn diagram on two pictures. I gave the plate to one person, they wrote something on the diagram and then asked someone else if they had something to add. The venn diagram was passed around to several people before we moved onto the next activity. Now for the main part of the lesson.

When your teacher asks you to write a 'Compare and Contrast' paper, what exactly do they mean? Well, when we learn about new things, our brain wants ever so badly to compare these new things to something that we already know about.. (What do they have in common?) Our brain also wants to know....How are they different (contrast)? The first step in a Compare and Contrast paper is a Venn Diagram.



Words to Use When Comparing & Contrasting:



To Compare: also, as, as well as, both, in the same manner, in the same way, like, likewise, most important, same, similar, similarly, the same as, too


To Contrast: although, but, differ, even though, however, in contrast, instead, nevertheless, on the contrary, on the other hand, unless, unlike, while, yet
