Informational Text Structure Activity

Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to teach text structures in upper elementary? THIS is the activity that you need! Engage your students in practicing the five text structures with a brochure activity that is fun and rigorous for them and SO easy to prep for you!

The Activity: Your students will become the newest “employees” of the coolest brochure designer in town. After reading informational text passages (two per location) about one of five locations, they will create a new brochure for each location using their super text structure skills! Students will be given a guided brochure template with specific questions pertaining to the passages and informational text structures. They can simply create the brochure using the template, or they can create a brochure from scratch and fill it out using the info on the template!

Please see the preview for a closer look at this resource. 

This text structures brochure activity resource includes:

  • 5 Location Pages (10 passages total)
  • 10 Guided Brochures (1 Per Passage)
  • Digital Access via Google Slides
  • Answer Key

Locations included:

  • Tanzania
  • Yellowstone
  • Hawaii
  • Grand Cayman
  • Tokyo and Hong Kong

Text Structures Included:

  • Problem & Solution
  • Cause & Effect
  • Compare & Contrast
  • Sequence
  • Description

Printing and Prep: This resource is super low-prep! There are two options for printing the passages: one totally black and white version or a full-color version to print and laminate and use year after year.

Digital Note: I have taken the digital version of this resource to a new level! Students will create “WEBSITES” for each location using the digital version. Even if you are in person teaching, I encourage you to have students create one “website” to give them the experience! Don’t worry! The websites are templates to fill in — no coding skills necessary.
