This is a pre-reading activity to have the students do before reading Tell Tale Heart. Based on the random vocabulary words, the students will sort the words and come up with a story line for what they think the story is going to be about. You can either have a discussion with your students or have them write a paragraph after they sort the words and make connections. My students were very close to making the correct predictions. This is a fun activity and you get to see how creative your students get.
