Day 4: "Jack and the Beanstalk"

On day 4, students will be creating a list of challenges that Jack faces throughout the story. They will be able to identify what a challenge is and find challenges in the text. This question directly relates to the culminating task for day 5, where they will be connecting those challenges with how Jack is able to overcome them. Today's question can be answered by creating a list independently or whole group. The list should be saved to be used during the culminating task assignment. Special Materials: * A copy of the text for each student * A copy of the student notes sheet for each student * Chart paper and pen if needed
