Nonfiction and Fiction Text Features

Looking for materials to introduce or review nonfiction text features, or to discuss how fiction is different than nonfiction? Maybe some of the resources I have listed below will be useful to you!

Here is a pre-assessment I used to see what the students already know about the features.  You can use this as a post-assessment as well!

After introducing the lesson and discussing each text feature, the students work in pairs to do a nonfiction text features scavenger hunt.  I give each of them a nonfiction text to hunt through and discuss what they find. They use the page below to write what they notice during the scavenger hunt.

I also created a couple games for the students to play in groups to review fiction/nonfiction text features.

Here is the nonfiction text features sort game board:

Here is another game that allows the students to sort between a fiction or a nonfiction text feature:

We also played a nonfiction text features pop-up game.  I read a definition and the students "pop-up" with the card that has the correct text feature name. 

I hope some of these resources will be helpful to you!
