The first and second grade students in Ms. Dombey’s Title I class at Atlantic Shores Christian School are comparing and contrasting a fiction and a non-fiction story.

First graders did a fiction and non-fiction sort. They compared and contrasted two stories. The non-fiction one was “How to Read a Map” and the fiction story was “A Trip to the Park.”
