This activity allows students to be creative and apply their knowledge of mastered ELA skills based on any assigned fictional short story.
Recommendation: All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury
Recommendation: The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
Teachers: You can have students complete this activity on a small scale (8.5 x 11) cut-out or you can up-size the activity by creating a cut-out template on 11 x 17 paper. I would suggest the larger size.
If you choose to use large size paper cut-out, you might want to consider hanging the finished products on a clothesline in or out of the classroom. It makes for a great display of student work.
