This documents includes ready-to-use activities for using nursery rhymes for a fiction unit when discussing style and diction, for a process essay unit, and for a final vocabulary project. I've used it for 31 years. Instructions for teacher and students are included as well as a scoring rubric for the project. My students have always had fun doing these. I've used it in 7th and 8th grade English classrooms all the way to my AP Literature course. One activity includes a cross-curricular assignment so students are incorporating topics from their science and/or math class into their English assignment.
