Fun with Fairy Tales

Fun with Fairy Tales

A box of fairy tale props, a digital camera and imagination is all that is needed to have fun with fairy tales.

Revise narrative conventions and work in groups to recreate classic stories.  Each group will read a different fairy tale such as: Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Students will then identify the main events of that story, carefully recreate each event using their box of props and photograph each scene along the way.

Download the Pre and Post Activity Sheet [PDF] for ideas on how to use students’ photos to design news stories back in the classroom.

  • Revise narrative conventions pertaining to fairy tales.
  • Identify the main events in a story.
