PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

To complete this activity, you will need to have a bag of M&M's to share with your students. Each student will need seven M&M's.

STUDENT DIRECTIONS:

Using some M&M’s, you will need to create quick story ideas that are based on the literary fictional genres. The genre that you create must entirely depend on the color of each M&M. The tricky part is that all of your story ideas must also somehow have M&M’s involved with the plot!

Blue – Realistic Fiction
Green – Fantasy
Orange – Science-Fiction
Yellow – Mystery
Red – Historical-Fiction
Brown – Any of the above!


EXAMPLE: During the Vietnam War in 1968, an American soldier who is captured tries to win his freedom by introducing a bag of M&M’s to the enemy and promising to give them more if he is freed.
