Compare and Contrast RL3.9Third Grade Reading: Compare and Contrast ResourceThis pack is packed full of ideas and resources to use while you are teaching the CCSS standard RL 3.9. If you are not teaching Common Core, then the pack is still valuable to use when teachings students how to compare and contrast fictional texts, specifically comparing plots, settings, and themes from stories by the same author.
