This Compare & Contrast Chart (single handout, shown in preview) is designed to help students compare versions of the same story. This activity could be used with a wide variety of traditional, fractured, and cultural versions of folk and fairy tales. I’ve included a suggested book list of Cinderella tales. The categories on the handout include:


*Main Character

*”Evil” Character/Antagonist

*Consequences to Evil Characters

*Magic Person


*Object(s) Central to Story


While the sheets are meant for individual student use, a photo shows how something similar can be done on a bulletin board to display class work.Visit my blog to read more about how I used these materials with students.
