Comparing/Compare & Contrast Reading Strategy

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. Practise the skills of comparing using our collection of compare and contrast reading passages and worksheets.

Compare refers to identifying similarities and differences.

Contrast refers to identifying only differences.
