Product Description
A packet of activities to accompany Roald Dahl's famous short story, "Lamb to the Slaughter". Included in this free resource:
* Comprehension question worksheet (students must use text evidence to justify their responses)
* Plot mapping activity--two forms included--one blank and one partially filled
* 8 task cards for extension after reading--students can respond in writing or orally.

Great for a day when you have a substitute, or for students to work on independently.

Here's an example of how I use this: First, I recommend that students watch the Alfred Hitchcock episode inspired by this story on YouTube the night before (good for background information, especially for struggling readers!). Next, I put students in small groups and have them read the story and answer the questions and fill in the plot diagram. Finally, I hand each group a task card and ask them to come up with a short presentation to give to the class. Their presentations are amusing and creative!

"Lamb to the Slaughter" is widely available for free on the internet or in anthologies.

I welcome your feedback and questions!
