Crossing the Road

Crossing the Road 

This lesson for 6th grade students uses drama to demonstrate the different types of conflict.  You can download our poster with the 5 different types of conflict to post in your classroom.  This also focuses on contrasting story elements (who, what, why, when, where, and conflict/resolution) to literary elements (plot, character, setting, problem, and theme.) This lesson uses the original story The Ghost Who Couldn’t Scare by Karen Erickson - download it to complete the materials.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Sixth Grade Curriculum.
