Text Structure Notes
(Use loose leaf or composition notebook)
There are 5 structures for Non-Fiction texts.

1. Description
2. Sequence
3. Problem Solution
4. Compare and Contrast
5. Cause and Effect

Text structures explain how a non-fiction text is organized.
Pass out text structures
hand out and discuss each with their pictures.
Together we'll read these paragraphs about monkeys and determine it's text structure.

Monkeys and humans are alike in many ways. A baby chimp laughs when its mother tickles it. After monkeys fight, they make up. When one monkey comforts another, it gives it a hug or pat on the back.
There are, of course, many ways that monkeys and humans are different. Monkeys are stronger than humans and have tails that help them swig from tree to tree.
Text Structure: ________________
I'll read the paragraph and chose the text structure.

Wild monkeys are rapidly disappearing. Some people are trying to solve this problem. Otherwise, monkeys may one day exist only in zoos. People are trying to save the rain forests and woodlands where
the chimps live from being cut down. It will take many people working together to solve this help the wild monkeys survive.

Text Structure:_____________________
In teacher chosen groups, the following 3 non-fiction articles. While you read, think about whether the structure is sequencing or compare and contrast. Two are of them have the same text structure.
We'll go over the activity now before you get in groups.

1. Read the article.

2. Discuss the structure and why your group thinks it is that structure.

3. On the worksheet, write the text structure and explain why in 2-3 complete sentences. Use details / key words from the text.
Share out as a class!
