This is one of my students' favorite projects! Groups of students become frozen paitntings (with their bodies) to present one of the conflicts of the short story (and to integrate music).
The lesson includes Common Core State Standards, lesson objectives, 3-page guidelines/suggestions for implementing the project (including the seven major conflicts from the story), a conflict chart, directions for creating Frozen Tableaux, a 2-page group handout for students to complete, and a sample tableau for you to demonstrate one of the conflicts in the story. The lesson also provides a variation to this project that can be used with any text.
This project allows students to clearly understand the story's plot and the impact of the conflicts on the characters and the story, and to engage in reading, writing, and group collaboration.
