Description

Introduce comparing and contrasting folklore with a slideshow and supporting resources. Kids learn to identify elements, find similarities and differences, and write a paragraph to explain. (RL.4.9, RL.5.9)

Created by master teacher Brenda Kovich, these activities are classroom-tested and kid-approved. They are also part of the Fourth Grade Literature Skills Bundle, which addresses all fourth grade literature standards.

What’s Included

  • 2 video links
  • Slideshow in PowerPoint and Google Slides
  • Lesson plans
  • 2 stories to compare - “Mani and Sol” and “The Fire Dog”
  • Table to organize story elements
  • Venn diagram to compare and contrast story elements
  • Response sheet
  • Sample responses for table, Venn diagram, and response

Direct Instruction

  1. Students watch “The Three Little Pigs” and “The Grasshopper and the Ants.”
  2. They watch as the slideshow models the process for locating story elements (characters, setting, plot, and theme), organizing them in a table, comparing them with a Venn diagram, and expressing them in a paragraph.

Guided or Independent Practice

  1. Students read “Mani and Sol” and “The Fire Dog.”
  2. They locate elements of each story and write them in a table.
  3. Using a Venn Diagram, they compare and contrast the elements.
  4. Finally, they express similarities and differences in constructed response.

Enjoy Teaching!
