These THREE supplemental activities for "The Necklace" are fun, yet extremely educational and perfect for Guy de Maupassant's short story. All of these activities ask students to work closely with the text to extract evidence to support their choices. Your students will love these activities just as much as ours do!
Activities included in this resource:
- Popcorn Predictions:
Students make and record predictions of what they think the text will be about based on receiving a strip of paper that includes 1-2 lines from the story.
- Evidence Tracker:
Students will gather evidence from the text to support various morals from the the story. For example, students are given a claim stating, "The moral of the story is material items aren't what's important in life." Then, students will have to extract specific evidence from the text to support this claim and justify their reasoning. This activity lends itself to students writing an essay in response to a prompt that we've provided for you.
- Socratic Seminar / Discussion Questions:
In addition to the four thought-provoking questions included, we've also included instructions for you regarding HOW to set up and effectively utilize Socratic Seminar in your classroom should you choose to do so.
- All three activities come with detailed instructions for use!
