Teacher Supplied Items: The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs and another version (any version of the 3 little pigs will suffice.). You will also need 1 12x18 sheet of construction paper per student, and 11x17 printer paper for the Venn Diagram. Students will need scissors and crayons/markers.
This activity is aligned to 2nd grade Common Core standards RL.2.9 and RL.2.1.
I would recommend reading the True Story of the 3 Little Pigs aloud to the class. After completing the story, fill out one of the who,what,when,where, and why houses as a class. I would then have the students read another version of the 3 Little Pigs independently or with partners. The students should then fill out the second who,what,when,where, and why house. These sheets will become the cover over the Venn Diagram. After reading both stories and completing the 5 Ws sheets, students should be able to work of the Venn Diagram provided.
Preparation: You will need to print out a picture of the wolf and a picture of the 3 little pigs for each student. I would recommend printing these of construction paper. Students will color the pictures. You will also need to print one Venn diagram per student on sheets of 11x17 paper.
Thank you for considering this item, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to send me a question.
