This Compare and Contrast fictional unit is packed full of standards-based lesson plans, professionally Lexiled passages, and activities to use while you are teaching the standard RL.2.9. If you are not teaching Common Core, then the unit is still valuable to use when teaching students to find similarities in differences in stories.
*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The passages and graphic organizers are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF. (The lesson plans, small group activities, and assessments are not digitally converted at this time.)*

*Update– A few lessons have been changed, and 2 new passages have been added, so that there are more differences between 1st and 2nd grade sets. The 1st Grade version of this standard has similar activities, but there are different topics.*
