Product Description

Do you want to add a little "flavor" to your summarizing unit? This is an engaging activity where your students read an original short story. (The events of this story actually happened, might I add!) After they have finished reading, students identify the characters, setting, beginning/problem, middle/events, end/resolution, and theme on the individual pieces of the sundae. Then, students use their pieces to write a complete summary!

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)

Check out the PREVIEW to get a good idea of what is included in the product.
