Teach your child the importance of point-of-view with these resources that take non-fiction texts of the same event and use them to compare and contrast what actually happened. Similar events can look very different through different eyes, and these resources not only help your students analyze text and become more comprehensive readers, but also allow them to reflect on how other people react to situations. Get more practice with our comparing and contrasting non-fiction texts resources.
