This writing activity is sure to bring some fun to the goals of the Common Core Standards. Students are expected to identify major events in a story. With this lesson, students will be able to identify major events throughout the story, and they will have fun doing it. The pictures create a visual for the students. I'm sure that your students will never forget this lesson! P.S. It's great for Thanksgiving, as it teaches a very important lesson on giving and being thankful.
