Fairy Tale Study- Mrs. Little & Mrs. Mallon's Classes
The students in Mrs. Little's & Mrs. Mallon's class studied the original The Snow Queen fairy tale.  They looked at the characteristics of fairy tales.  They discussed how this genre has specific traits that differ from other types of fiction.  Students wrote a short biography project on Hans Christian Anderson, the author of The Snow Queen. The classes looked clips of the movie Frozen and compared it to the The Snow Queen.

In the MakerStudio, student collaborated in mixed class groups to create a pop-up scene that depicted a characteristic of the fairy tale genre and one they enjoyed.
