Product Description

Address that tough fourth grade literature standard with text, visuals, and video. Kids read "The Tortoise and the Hare" with no pictures. Then they compare it to versions with illustrations and video.

What’s Included

• Lesson plans with directions and discussion questions

• One-page text of “The Tortoise and the Hare” with no illustration

• One-page text of “The Tortoise and the Hare” with life-like illustration

• One-page text of “The Tortoise and the Hare” with cartoon illustration

• Video link for Disney’s Silly Symphony version of “The Tortoise and the Hare” (8 minutes)

• Table for comparing characters, setting, plot, and theme of the text and video

• “Mark it up!” page with a smaller version of the text and plenty of margin space (students underline/highlight descriptions in text and explain how they are reflected in the video)

Overview

• Students read text with no illustration. They take notes on their impressions of the characters, setting, plot, and theme.

• Teacher displays text with life-like illustration. The class discusses how impressions of the story elements shift.

• Teacher displays text with cartoon illustration. The class again discusses how impressions of the story change.

• Students watch the Disney Silly Symphony video and take notes on their impressions of the characters, setting, plot, and theme.

• Students underline or highlight descriptions in the text that were reflected in the video and explain.

• The class discusses how multimedia (sights and sounds) contributed to (or altered) the meaning, tone, and beauty of the text.

Created by master teacher Brenda Kovich, these activities are classroom-tested and kid-approved. They are also part of the Fourth Grade Literature Skills Bundle, which addresses all fourth grade literature standards.

Enjoy!
