Beware These Evil Characters!

Grade 2 has finished their fairy tale unit both in the library and in class. In the library, students learned about the ingredients needed to cook up a good fairy tale. We then examined several fairy tales - Little Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin, Snow White, and others and zeroed in on the "bad" or evil characters. We noticed that most evil characters were women - often stepmothers and witches and sometimes greedy Kings. After taking notes with Popplet on the iPads, students created WANTED POSTERs using another iPad app. Please enjoy their posters!
