Activity Overview

A compare and contrast worksheet helps students analyze the differences/similarities of two separate ideas, people, events, places, etc. It can help students list the evidence for both sides of their topics, and weigh the merits of each. For this activity, students will identify and record differences and similarities between the book and the movie Wonder. Teachers can modify the worksheets to guide students through each text, and scaffold as needed! They can be completed digitally or printed out and used to take notes while reading/watching.
