First grade is learning about nonfiction by comparing two books about badgers. One is nonfiction and the other fiction. We are working on seeing the differences between the two. Our practice includes searching for real photos, labels, diagrams, captions, headings, tables of contents, and the glossary. Read some nonfiction with your kids today and see if you can pick out the features that make it a “learning” book.
