This is a fun little activity that helps students review the literary/short story elements using Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". My kids usually love it, even my sophomores and seniors. I typically use it as a beginning of the year review. But if you have younger grades (middle school) who are still learning the elements, it's a great tool for helping them identify them in a more simple story.
This packets includes a PDF file of the story so you can show each page on your projector as they read. I usually read it to them while going through the slides. As I said, even the 18 year-olds get a kick out of being read Dr. Suess again :-)
