Fairy Tale Facebook

This week, second graders took a creative look at biography, picture books, fractured fairy tales, and internet safety. After watching a classical version of the Three Little Pigs and discussing what a biography for the Big Bad Wolf would look like, we read Jon Scieska’s fractured version of the story, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

This comparison started a great conversation about fractured fairy tales, which lead us to our main question: is the Big Bad Wolf really a bad guy, or a misunderstood good guy? To answer, I invited each student to write a modern biography about the Fairy Tale character using one of the world’s most popular ways to tell life stories: Facebook.

This lesson also provided us with an opportunity to talk about internet safety and online bullying. I was impressed with the mature thoughts and debates that the students shared!

Many classes are still working on their Facebook pages, but here is a small sample of the creative, hilarious student work that I’ve seen!
