Activity Overview


The third grade standard for "compare and contrast" is focused on comparing two different books by the same author about the same or similar characters. The Mouse and the Motorcycle is part of a series of books about Ralph, so it presents a perfect opportunity to practice this standard. Students can choose to compare The Mouse and the Motorcycle with Runaway Ralph or Ralph S. Mouse. They can compare the theme, setting, plot, or all of the above.
