Product Description
The relationship between plot and theme isn’t always clear for students. This activity is a fun way to show them how mixing up the elements of the plot changes the theme. My students have a blast collaborating and creating their own fable remixes and in the process come to understand the connection between plot and theme.

There are three main activities…

✔ Students read a familiar Aesop fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, to determine the author’s theme
✔ Students read short “remixes” of the fable to analyze how the new plot elements change the theme.
✔ Students get to collaborate with their partner on their own “remix” of the fable

Objectives
Students will use plot elements to determine theme.
Students will write new plot elements in order to create a new theme.

Common Core State Standards
Reading Literature 2: Analyze a text’s theme and its relationship to characters, setting, and plot.

Appropriate for students Grade 6-10.

What’s included:
✔ 2-page student activity: Theme and Plot Relationship: Fable Remix
