Product Description
This is a great story to use with students around Halloween! I use this lesson whenever my students are distracted by the seasonal festivities, but still need to practice literary analysis. The lesson utilizes the short story, "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury. Students must read, analyze the text, and complete a creative writing assignment. There are two different options for planning sheets for the students to use as they write! I've also included a vocabulary game using context clues.There are 2 creative writing options and 16 task cards that push students to think critically about the text and utilize literary elements.
