will explain what it means when we say that two things are “different.” I will show a picture of two cars (Picture C is provided) and identify (by circling) what is different about the two cars. (They have different tires, shape, size, etc.)
Ask: "How did I find the parts of the cars that are different in the pictures?" Students should respond that you looked at the two pictures together and circled the parts that were different.
will look at the two pictures of dogs from Lesson 1 (picture D is provided) and identify (by circling) the characteristics that are different between the two dogs. (their ears, color, body shape, etc.) Things can be the same and be different at the same time. The dogs both have two ears. That is what is the same. But the dogs’ ears look different. One dog has pointy ears and the other has fluffy, floppy ears. That is different.
will look at a picture of a dog and a picture of a cat. You will circle the things that are different in the two pictures. (Independent Practice Worksheet is provided.)
