Compare and Contrast

Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies

This song is available on Read About It, Sing About It:
Reading Comprehension Strategy Songs.

To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.
To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.

To make it easy, first tell how things are the same.
You can compare people, places, or things.
No matter what, the process is the same.
Take your time so you won’t miss anything.

To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.
To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.

What does it look like? 
Is it big or small?
What is the color? 
Does it do anything at all?

Take a look at every part. 
Now you are ready to start.
Make a list if you can 
Or draw a Venn diagram

To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.
To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.

Don’t forget to tell everything. 
To show why they are not the same
If you think there’s something you’ve missed,
Go back to your diagram or your list.

To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.
To compare is to tell how things are the same.
To contrast is to tell how things are different.
