- Collaborative Activity: Students work in small groups to write about the story elements of the story. Students will draw a large slice of pizza on a small poster board or piece of butcher paper. Students then use the pizza toppings to write about the Characters, Setting, Problem, Solution, Beginning, Middle, and End.
- Independent Activity: Students create a Tasty Traits Pizza. This can be used with any skill. There are blank versions and versions to be used to write about the character traits in the beginning, middle, and end of the story. There are also sheets of writing paper that can be stapled behind the pizza slice.
