Exercise in Similarities and Differences -- Page 1

My students enjoy using this list. I do not give the list to the students but give them a single set of the words.
For example let us look at "orange" and "lemon."
We start by asking how they are similar and we come up with a list as follows:

Similarities Differences

Both are citrus One is yellow, the other orange

Both are grown in similar climates One is eaten, the other is not often eaten
Both have similar growing seasons One can stand a colder temperature
