Product Description

Complete this awesome card activity after reading Roald Dahl's story, Lamb to the Slaughter. Students, working independently, with partners, or in small groups, will be challenged to identify quotes that support different theme topics.

This card activity comes with 20 quote cards and 6 subjects. Students must classify the quotes according to which subject/theme they would support. The activity encourages discussion, debate, and promotes a deeper understanding of the story.

In my class, students generally get caught up in the activity, and although I allot 10 minutes for it, the activity generally takes closer to 15. Subsequent larger or whole group discussions are more productive and students are able to make strong connections to the text because that skill has been properly scaffolded.
