Making a Fantasy Line
Students will be able to better distinguish events that occur in the fantasy and real world by drawing a fantasy line.
- a large piece of paper
- smaller pieces of paper for drawing (about 5 cm squares)
- a book that takes place in a fantasy and real world
- crayons, pencil crayons, or markers
- After reading the book, make a list of the main events that occured, individually or as a class.
- On the small pieces of paper draw these events, and write a description of each underneath.
- When finished, make two piles of pictures; one for the events that occured in the fantasy world, and the other for the events that occured in the real world.
- Put each pile in the order that they occured.
- Fold the large piece of paper in half (vertically, the hotdog way), open it up, and draw a line over the fold.
- Title one side of the paper "Fantasy World" and the other side "Real World". Glue the pictures on the appropriate side.
- Variation: Instead of drawing all of the events, simply list them in their appropriate worlds.
