There are 2 slides for nonfiction and informational (the definition is the same). And there are 2 slides for folktale and traditional literature (the definition is the same.)
Slides 13-23 review the characteristics of each genre. They look identical to each other. Each slide has six sentences. Students will read the sentences and decide which ones are true about the genre. They will move the true sentences onto the colored shapes. There are also 2 slides for nonfiction/informational and folktale/traditional literature. You can choose which slides to use with your students.
