Comparing Settlement Groups

Name: ___________________ Date: ______________

Graphical element: Jacques LeCastor  

A Venn diagram is a circle graph that can be used to show the similarities and differences between two different groups. Use the data you have collected to compare two of the settlement groups.

  • Label the circles so everyone will know which circle belongs to which settlement group.

  • Write the facts about the groups that are the same in the part of the two circles that overlap.

  • Write the facts about the groups that are different in the parts of the circles that don't overlap.
