The fractured fable The True Story of the Three Little Pigs Reading Activities for 2nd and 3rd grades (pairs well with The BAD GUYS movie) includes vocabulary games, crafts and reading skills like compare and contrast, determining the genre, point of view, summarizing, sequencing, analyzing the characters, cause and effect, and determining the moral. It's full of engaging cross-curricular lessons, activities, and worksheets which include a health lesson on covering your mouth when you sneeze unlike the wolf in this fable; a math lesson graphing who you believe, the pigs or the wolf; science lessons with information on wolves with comprehension questions; several writing lesson options including a recipe, a news report, an opinion paragraph, and a fractured fable highlighting point of view; and a study on words that include -ight and compound words.
Pairs well with THE BAD GUYS movie that came out in April 2022 about a wolf and his friends who set out to fool the world that they’ve been transformed. Compare and Contrast the wolf from the movie to the wolf from the True Story of the Three Little Pigs. This unit also includes character worksheets for the Wolf in the movie. These are fun if your class has seen the movie, or you can just compare the Scieszka book to the traditional version of the Three Little Pigs.
