As part of our Grade 3 Who We Are unit, we studied our theme of “Cultures around the world tell the same basic stories in different ways.”
Students studied the five basic elements of a story – characters, setting, plot, conflict and resolution.
Students were assigned a specific book and worked together in groups as they identified the elements. They also used their creativity to draw pictures representing the book they read. Furthermore, students gave a presentation on their “retelling hand” poster in front of the class. Everyone gave their best effort as they were tasked to give eye contact while speaking loudly and clearly for everyone to hear. Wonderful job Grade 3s!
