Why Lesson Planet?
Fourth graders listen as the teacher reads the story "The Fall of Freddie the Bat." Using a worksheet, they identify the main event of the story. Students watch as the teacher acts out a mystery nursery rhyme. Students close their eyes when the command "curtain down" is indicated. "Curtain up" is the cue to open their eyes. Students view the freeze frame fairy tale and attempt to summarize the story that they are viewing. Students write the summary using the five main events they identify.
