Have Students Create Their Own Nonfiction Text Features Books
- Grades: 3–5
To help students learn nonfiction text features, some teachers at our school have them cut out examples from magazines and paste them into blank versions of these Text Feature Posters to make a book. Scholastic News is a great source of text features for a project like this.
The "My Text Features Book" can be an ongoing project throughout the school year. Students may cut out one or two text features from each new edition of Scholastic News as they read it in class (or any other magazines or newspapers they have access to).
Download a PDF slide show of the "My Text Features Book" in which I have included templates for 23 different nonfiction text feature pages that you can print and use with your own students. Since it is a large file, right click on the link and choose "save target as."
