How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Watch the How the Grinch Stole Christmas cartoon and follow the plot structure. Students will illustrate the story plot structure on this storyboard form.

The story is a perfect Christmas classic and it follows the: introduction, rising action, climax, and falling action.

  1. Pass out the storyboard form to each student.
  2. Write the above listed plot terms on the board – it would help if this was not the first time they had been exposed to these terms.
  3. Watch the movie and have students illustrate each part of the plot. Students should do a quick sketch that represents each part of the plot.
  4. Students should color each illustration depending on how much time you have.
  5. This form has six boxes. There should be one picture for the introduction, two pictures for the rising action, one picture for the climax and two for the falling action.
  6. Students should label each box with a brief explanation of the event

Assessment: I check for understanding of the plot terms (depending on how well students are expected to understand them). I also check effort but not artistic ability.
