Cycle 4 focused on Language Arts & Communication. Third grade students learned about point of view, and how it impacts the ways in which stories are told. Students were then split into small groups and each group chose a classic fairy tale. They started by reading the original fairy tale and identifying the story elements, which included setting, main characters, problem, main events, and solution/resolution.
After analyzing the original fairy tale, students twisted the tale to tell it from the point of view of a different character – the villain! They worked together to plan, write, and record their story in a Podcast! Check out how the classic fairy tales have been twisted and retold from a different point of view! You’ll never believe what really happened!
