Students use a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast The Three Little Pigs and other fairytales. In this compare and contrast lesson, students read two books aloud discussing the setting, point of view, climax and resolution. In small groups students then fill out the Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the two tales.
Equipped with all the necessary components of a literary response, including a summary page, vocabulary list, a space for questions and answers, a story flow chart, and a character map, this resource is a superior way for students to complete a book report. Two additional pages provide 10 response-to-literature questions and 10 extension activities. This format will work for any book, not just Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five. It is also not restricted to homeschool use.
Brief, but befitting, this PowerPoint introduces onlookers to the concept of ecological succession. Photos and vivid diagrams bring the process to life. As a bonus, succession in aquatic ecosystems is explored. The presentation concludes with a list of vocabulary terms which viewers can define as a reinforcement exercise. This nifty little package will be an enrichment to your ecology arsenal.
Do figures of speech enhance a play or story? In small groups, learners locate and describe figures of speech they find while reading a reader's theater play. After making predictions, they describe how the figures of speech make the play better. They also compare the play to the story on which it was based. Part I of the instructions relates to this activity; Parts III and beyond appear to have been accidentally cut-and-pasted from another unit.
Analyzing the sequence of actions in dramatic stories leads to deeper comprehension of story structure. The class identifies the main actions in each section of a story and develops frozen tableau's for the identified actions of the story. Great for kinesthetic learners!
Elements of plot are explored using the Geronimo Stilton book series. Pupils identify various plot elements using sticky notes, complete a plot diagram, participate in a class discussion, and write a book review. Worksheet links and assessment ideas are included, as is an extension activity where the class writes their own Stilton narrative.
