Tired of the same old boring activities? Vary it up a little bit with film! This lesson compares and contrasts two short film versions of Ray Bradbury’s classic cautionary tale The Veldt with the original text version of the story. The lesson guides you through the prep, all the way to the final product. Your students will work in pairs, or table groups as well as have whole classroom discussions about the materials (guide questions have been included to help facilitate this process). They will also practice organizing their findings into different graphic organizers. Finally, they will create an individual product, either a short paragraph, or a full essay depending on your classroom needs and available time. The basic version of the lesson can be done in just a couple days, but can be extended up to a week and possibly longer. The videos and story are not included in this packet, but materials can easily be found online for free, or can be purchased from many retailers.
