Grab this FREE English Language Arts holiday activity for your high school or middle school students! After reading a novel, play, or story, have students make cookies that symbolically represent literary elements. (To make this safer, have students individually-wrap each cookie.) Or, if students can't make cookies, have them illustrate them or create them using an online design program.
Let students bring in their homemade cookies to exchange with one another. During the exchange (try a gallery walk), they can explain with text evidence (text support) how the cookies connect with their selected literary elements. Make eating cookies a literary event!
This printable 10-page PDF includes the following:
- Teacher instructions
- Literature elements graphic organizers (color or black and white)
- Handout to prepare literary connections
- Gallery walk worksheets
In addition to the printable lesson, this resource is ready to be used online with Easel by TpT!
