Reading non-fiction books benefits literacy development and also improves general knowledge. These 54
Non-Fiction Detective Cards will engage your students and help them grasp the wide array of non-fiction text features in a motivating way. Understanding these text features are crucial as the students move into older grades and are required to use non-fiction texts for assignments, further study and reading to improve their general knowledge.
These 54 Non-Fiction Detective Cards cover text features such as the glossary, table of contents, index, publication details, headings, subheadings, keywords in italics and bold font, back cover blurb, front cover, maps, diagrams, captions, arrows, text boxes, tables, bibliography details, graphs, spine, call number, introduction, appendix, timelines and ISBN. Furthermore, skills such as comparing and contrasting, summarising key information, finding real life connections, word work, critical thinking and discovering the author’s purpose are also developed.
Print, cut and laminate these cards and use them every year.
