This Princess and the Pea worksheet was created during a unit on Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes.
First, read The Princess and the Pea.
Each student was given choice of either "bed". The student was then asked to count the number of "mattresses" in the bed they had chosen and then write that number on the line at the top of the page.
This worksheet was also accompanied by a picture of the child "sleeping" (laying down on a mat on the floor in my classroom). I printed and cut out each picture and glued it to the "bed" so it looked as though the child was sleeping on it. Parents love any project with a photo of their child!
