Students will learn about a variety of genres through the powerpoint and as a follow up activity students are given a "Genre Passport." The passports are included in this zipfile. The activity is to be done by gathering a variety of these genre books from the library and placing them out on tables for kids to "travel" around to investigate the different genres. The passport includes questions about the different genres for students to check for understanding.
