This is a set of materials for teaching literary elements using 7 different fairy tales. Each fairy tale includes cards describing the story's setting, characters, plot, problem, solution, and theme. There are also headings for each of the different elements. They can be used for instruction but also work well for sorting in a literacy center.
The fairy tales include: Snow White, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, The Ugly Duckling, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion and the Mouse, The Three Little Pigs. (I realize The Lion and the Mouse is really a fable but the story works well with this activity.)
