This literature project engages students in analyzing Leo Tolstoy's short story "Three Questions". My advanced fourth graders loved it! The story works well across upper elementary because it offers multiple layers (like an onion, as I tell my students) for readers to access the complexity. For copyright reasons, this product does not include the short story, but it is easy to find online.
The project moves through four steps of analysis, including independent & self-guided group work. It could also be adapted for a whole group series of lessons.
My TpT free vocabulary analysis sheet would pair well with this: http://bit.ly/1xPEAcC
This activity could function for:
* Enrichment or gifted & talented classes
* Literature stations or centers
* Collaborative literature project
This project addresses so many different ELA standards, I couldn't list them all!
Also consider my TpT "Analyzing Oscar Wilde's 'The Happy Prince' Short Story" too: http://bit.ly/1Bwz1z7
If you have any questions or concerns, please use the “Ask Question” option & I will get back to you ASAMBCA (As Soon As My Busy Classroom Allows)!
