Have you ever wondered how the game of rock paper scissors began? Well, Drew Daywalt has created a fantastic legend your students will LOVE! It all started in the Kingdom of the Backyard. Read this funny story about how three great warriors started it all. Take a look at these book activities for The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors.
Not your ordinary book companion
I’ve created many picture book companions called “picture book challenges.” They work like escape room games. The goal is for students to solve the challenges (activities), discover mystery words, and crack a final code word. Why? To discover the answer to a joke!
Students want to complete their work because it feels like a game! Use the digital or the printable version. The digital version is ready to assign in Google and Seesaw.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After being taught the vocabulary words and hearing the book read aloud (a link to the story video is provided), students will:
1. Complete six ELA activities
2. Discover a mystery word for each challenge
3. Write the mystery words on a recording sheet
4. Crack a final code word that reveals the answer to the joke
Let’s take a look at the skills covered in this fun challenge for The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors:
- Cause Effect
- Nonfiction Passage
- Story Questions
