Looking for a fun activity to review fiction genres? Would You Rather? cards ask students to choose between two options based on a fiction genre. For example, a card in the mystery set asks if they would rather try to find fingerprints on a corn dog or footprints in hot lava. Add some whimsy and fun to your genre studies!
You can check out a few of the questions on the sample images.
Included are 30 cards each for fantasy, mystery, realistic, historical fiction, and science fiction (total of 150 cards, with two choices each). I've also included a list of recommended reading in each genre, in case you are looking for a great read-aloud or a book to suggest to your students.
Students can use the Would You Rather cards to practice supporting their opinions with reasons, verbally or in writing. They can also use math skills and graph group responses. The cards could prompt a search for the chapter book related to the question.
In the library, I use the cards as a learning center with verbal responses. We have a lot of fun with these, and it helps students to learn more about the characteristics of the fiction genres. I've included a printable "I Can" sign for your learning center, with the newest AASL Standards about collaborating.
I hope you'll engage your students in this fun activity to develop their reasoning skills!
