We created Non-Fiction Text Features posters in the classroom in order to review what they are and how they are used when reading non-fiction books. Each group was given a non-fiction book to use. The students marked pages that included one or more examples of the non-fiction text features (headings, sub-headings, diagrams, maps/charts, glossary, index, table of contents, pictures, etc.) and then I copied them. Once they had their copied pages, the students cut out the examples, and created the poster. For each example, the students had to write what the text feature was and how it is used.
They had loads of fun and they learned a lot about text features! A great review activity prior to state testing!
