I love this lesson! This is such a fun, creative, and interactive lesson! 😍

Something I like about this resource is that it is very engaging! it uses a variety of sources and relatable stories to teach the elements. I also really like like the 3rd assessment idea, a creative way to get students to take their learning of the elements to the application level.

An opportunity for improvement of this resource is to include the estimated timing for each section (maybe in parathesis next to the header). It might help other teachers knows the pacing of each part really easily.

Something I wonder about this resource is if there is a simple fairy tale story from another culture that could be included as you analyze the elements of fairytales. Not sure if that's possible, but it might be cool to include one from else where.

One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is maybe keep the subtitles and titles in "step 3-instruction" bolded and then leave the other words in that section not bolded. Not a big deal, just an idea:)

Thanks for the feedback. I made the changes and it made it better. I couldn't change the bolding because I initially wrote it in a google doc and then just cut and pasted it into the remix lesson plan but I did underline the specific areas so I hope that helps. I also put on approximate times so that it will help teachers.
