Making connections is an important comprehension strategy that helps students make meaning of what they are reading. When students make connections to their texts, it helps them to make sense of what they are reading and retain the information better. It also has a bonus of increasing motivation to read and therefore creating positive student engagement with the text.
This resource is provided in a print version as well as PowerPoint and Google Slides activity. An additional Google Slides activity pack is included.
