A creative activity that allows the students to have fun with irony by being a "mean genie". When I did this activity with my 8th graders, we came up with all of the wishes together as a class, but everyone still had to come up with their ironic result.
Fits the following learning target: I can create examples of irony.
STUDENT DIRECTIONS: Imagine that you are a genie that’s fed up with people’s wishes. With the help of the class, let’s create a list of wishes that people often make that you’re getting tired of. As a frustrated genie, come up with an ironic way to give each person what they wished for to teach them a lesson.
