All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury PowerPoint. Slides are set up for an after reading cooperative learning activity or learning centers for small groups. May also be used instead on a projector as 10 different assignments for the short story. Common core standards based activities for the following skills: identify prepositional phrases, figurative language, context clues, vivid verbs, sentence structure, sensory language, implicit and explicit details and inferences, characterization and setting.
Directions for group activity:
Print out and laminate the following slides to use as posters.
Place each poster on a wall above a sheet of chart paper.
Divide class into small groups. (There are 10 stations to visit, so groups of three will work well with a class of 27 students.)
Each group gets a different colored marker to use.
Allow groups to rotate through the charts. You may wish to set a timer and have them change at regular intervals.
Provide additional chart paper if needed.
Summarize the activity when finished by discussing the student answers with the whole group. Updated 2018.
If you don't want to do a wall walk activity, you can still use the slides to project on your whiteboard for students to do a literary analysis individually, in groups or as a whole class. Editable for your classroom use.
