Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students work together to craft a list of common fairy tale elements. They then explore and analyze a variety of tales, recording information using a story map. The story map becomes a launching point for students' own fairy tales. Students use the characteristics of a known tale and change one literary element to create a new tale, which includes a different set of characters, has a new setting, or includes a changed conflict or resolution. They then publish and illustrate their new tales for others to enjoy. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
