This is our new unit understanding:

Fairy tales is a genre of literature containing a story which has changed over time and has been interpreted by different cultures – yet has retained it’s original message.

Essential Questions:

  1. What makes a story a fairy tale ?
  2. Why are stories important to every culture?
  3. How do stories change over time?

Today’s activity is a launch to the concept of a fractured fairy tale. After reading a traditional fairy tale, the reader stops at a crucial point in the story and gives the kids a choice on what direction or path they want their story to go. The new story evolves as they make different choices.

Enjoy their adventure ! 🙂
