Identifying Elements of Nonfiction

I love these elements of nonfiction posted in the library of the school I visited. I make sure I touch on all of these elements using my books as examples during my presentation. When I quizzed these students about what these elements were called it was no wonder they already knew!

I love it when the projects are targeted to specific age groups. The older elementary students either created their perfect pet using my I Like Dogs! series or composed interesting facts from my Creature Features series.

Don't they look great on display with my books in the library!

Younger elementary students chose one of my books, identified the main topic and two interesting facts they learned from the book. Listing where they found the facts is a great way to introduce young students to reliable sources.

Not only were these great writing exercises, but they also helped students become familiar with me, my books, and with nonfiction in general. This helps make for a successful author visit. You know these students were fully engaged in my presentation and prepared to ask great questions. Something all authors appreciate!
