Add a little F-U-N to the end of the year by playing Genre Memory and completing this ice cream genre craft! I originally created these genre related activities because many formative assessments require students to read a passage and then determine the genre of the selection; however, it also serves as a great end of the year review!!
I usually break down the activities into two lessons. On the first day we review the genres and play genre memory. On the second day we apply what we have learned by completing the ice cream craftivity.
Genre Memory – Students must match the genre to the correct definition.
Ice Cream Craft – Students must match the correct genre (cone) to the correct story (ice cream).
I have broken down Traditional Literature into subcategories (tall tale, fairy tale, folktale, legend, fable). If your students are not ready for these cards, you can simply not use them!
Includes: Fantasy, Realistic Fiction, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, Myth, Tall Tale, Fairy Tale, Mystery, Fable, Informational, Biography, Autobiography, Traditional Literature, Folktale, Legend, Poetry
