This Learning About Fiction Genres in the Elementary School Library lesson plan also includes:
Teaching about fiction genres can be challenging. The activity here, designed for library media specialists, offers a fun way to do it. In the activity, learners visit the library and learn about the different types of fiction through book talks, participating in reader's theater, playing games, and visiting a "genre museum" in the library media center. By the end of the sessions, pupils will be experts on fiction genres, knowing the difference between mysteries, historical fiction, realistic fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. A great teaching idea.
