This project is a culminating task for a comedy unit. Using fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, students combine elements from several stories to create their own tale. Students choose three stories to merge together in the style of an English Pantomime.
This 19 page project includes evaluation sheets and organizational papers (costumes, props, location etc.). This is an excellent project to use with co-operative learning groups.
Skills used in the project include: research, co-operative group work, organization, writing, creativity, self evaluation, peer evaluation, application, time management and many more!
