Product Description
In this pack you will find a PowerPoint that introduces the concept of genres and then goes onto to describe the fantasy and science fiction genres. Please note that this PowerPoint is NOT editable due to the clipart contained within it. Also, the PowerPoint will start on its own once you click on it. Just click to advance each slide.

Also included in this pack is a genre identification activity. Students decide whether or not a book is a fantasy or science fiction book based on its description and circle their answer on the activity sheet. The books in this activity should appeal to most second and third graders. I have included a double page of the activity sheet in case you want to save on paper. The descriptions are listed within the PowerPoint mentioned above. Answers to this activity may be checked in one of two ways, with the answer slide in the PowerPoint or with a free Augmented Reality app called Aurasma. The book covers included in this pack are the “trigger images” needed to check the answers. Print them off and scan them with the Aurasma app.

IMPORTANT!!! To check the answers with the Aurasma app, you will first need to download the Aurasma app to your mobile device. This should be down ahead of time. Aruasma is avaialable in both Google Play and iTunes. After downloading the app, you will need to follow my channel on your device. The link to follow my channel is included in this pack. NOTE: You must have Internet access in order for Aurasma to run.

A 4th-6th grade version of this activity is available HERE.
