The Elements of a Fairy Chart is a great activity for discovery learning. Students read 5 fairy tales out of the fifteen suggested choices and mark with an x the elements and characteristics of fairy tales they find in their stories. Students can read most of the fairy tales online at the suggested website and complete this as a webquest, or you may prefer to provide books for them to read. Either way, they will see through discovery that fairy tales have many characteristics in common, then apply what they have learned to write their own fairy tale. Writing paper and word bank to get them started included. Web page included so you can just click on the links.
