Help your students develop Critical Thinking Skills with this fun and engaging activity!
This interactive PowerPoint Activity allows practice in thinking outside the box with this well-known children's fairytale.
Teacher's can use this activity with the whole class, or have the student's work in small groups to discuss the sixteen, various high-level thinking questions. There is a link available for students to listen to a version of the story at the beginning of the activity. Want some friendly competition added into the mix? Each question has a point value. Students can answer each of the questions and then decide on the best answer. This activity is for students of all ages. I have used this activity with my elementary students, as well as with my high school students.

What's Included?
1. Interactive PowerPoint with 16 questions.
2. A set of 16 task cards that can be used without the PowerPoint. Just copy, cut on the solid line, fold on the dotted line, staple/glue/laminate for a great language center activity! Lots of other uses, as well!
3. Answer Worksheet for students to jot down their ideas before sharing them with the group.
