Our collection of compare and contrast worksheets aims to help students develop critical thinking skills. One of the first higher-order reading strategies children must develop is comparing. Children must learn to effectively and accurately group things (objects, characters, ideas, concepts, etc.) based on similarities and differences. Comparing is an important reading strategy as it encourages and helps develop critical thinking skills. Watch our Compare & Contrast Video.
