Use this power point to introduce your students to the elements of fairy tales, such as:*taking place long ago*magical elements*groups of 3*good vs. evil*conflicts (problems)*resolutions (solutions)*morals (lessons)This presentation also explains that fairy tales can have many different versions and provides students with examples of fairy tales from different cultures, as well as fractured fairy tales.I have also included an anchor chart poster to go along with the power point.

This picture is classic image of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. I chose this picture because it represent typical imagery in fairy tales. The young, innocent looking white girl going up against a bigger, badder, scarier creature.
