Product Description
This lesson is a creative post reading activity that focuses on irony in the Roald Dahl's short story "Lamb to the Slaughter." Students are asked to find examples of irony within the story and explain their meanings, focus on important objects, and describe the importance of the main characters all while making a baby blanket for Mary's unborn child. This lesson can be adapted to fit other stories, and it can also be constructed to focus on other literary devices and their uses. It includes detailed instructions of the assignment for both the students and the teacher, and three ready-to-use templates.
