This resource includes three activities that can be completed after students have both read Lemony Snicket’s The Bad Beginning and watched the first two episodes of the Series of Unfortunate Events TV show on Netflix. You may choose to have students complete all three activities or just one. In my classroom, I make copies of all three activities and tell my students they must complete two of the three.
