This activity DOES NOT include the text of "The Monkey's Paw."
This activity was made to be done after completion of the short story "The Monkey's Paw." Students are asked to use an "8 1/2 x 11" size piece of paper, and create a colorful warning label that would deter anyone from ever using the Paw if they crossed paths with it. By completing this assignment, students will show their creativity and also show their comprehension of the story since most of the warnings are taken from events from the story. This does not work well as a summative assessment, however, this activity worked very well as the first assignment after the story was completed which reinforced comprehension.
