KS3, KS2, "The Glass Cupboard", parable, fairy tale, close reading, moral, quiz, hw, cover

KS3, KS2, "The Glass Cupboard", parable, fairy tale, close reading, moral, quiz, hw, cover

I made this as a homework task for a year 8 class to be read and completed before a study in class of Dickens's "Prince Bull". It features Terry Jones' "The Glass Cupboard" which is a fairytale parable about environmental responsibility. There are 12 questions which focus on the genre, the idea of a parable, the difference between a parable and a fable and some of the language used in the story. Although this is a simple story, it's a great introduction to the idea of morality tales/parables and could form the basis for a deeper study (as in our classroom, with Dickens). The lesson plan for Prince Bull is also available.
