Product Description
The Veldt by Ray Bradbury - Short Story Poster Project, Reading Activities, and Close Reading Resources

The Veldt Poster Project and Close Reading Resources help to bring this engaging short story to life in your classroom. Perfect for your upcoming short story unit, this short story package includes Veldt questions that are thought provoking and engaging. The included close reading resources help students analyze the short story while practicing close reading strategies.

First, students use the multiple pages of close reading resources to help them analyze and annotate the short story. Step by step close reading instructions are included.

Students then use the THREE included poster templates to respond to The Veldt text by answering comprehension questions and analyzing literary elements. Completed posters make gorgeous hallway and classroom displays, or creative additions to an Interactive Notebook.

A detailed answer key to all of the comprehension questions is included, as well as a link to an online version of the text.

Three additional handouts have also been included to use along with the story. These can be used for additional activities, bonus activities, differentiation, or extra practice, as needed.

For this activity, students choose key quotes from the story, and explain their importance.

This is a fun foldable activity that can be included in an Interactive Notebook. Students use the foldable to write a variety of responses to the story.

Students use this worksheet to review and make connections to key vocabulary in the story.
