Cities look very different than towns do, but children don't often have any reference point for anything different than where they live. This social studies PDF shows your child that cities have certain attributes like traffic, business people and skyscrapers, while suburbs and rural areas don't. Using the colorful imagery, they'll choose which pictures represent cities, and have picture reinforcement to refer to when they're thinking about the differences in cities and towns.
Information comes to our children in various ways, and sometimes that can confuse them when text is delivered differently. This worksheet is a great way to show them that text can be presented in different ways and still have similar information as they may be used to in paragraph form. They'll look at the two different presentations of information, and then refer back to the texts to find the similarities in each. They'll compare the information and begin looking at reading comprehension with critical thinking skills.
Critically thinking when we're reading is an important part of reading comprehension. Information is often delivered in different text formats, and it's important for new readers to be able to pull important information out of various text layouts. This free worksheet teaches your child about the things they may find in cities, and also has them looking for critical differences in story format and picture format.
