This lesson serves as a short introduction of the fantasy genre. The lesson can be expanded if you want it to be more than an introduction.
Overview: In this lesson, students will become familiar with the elements of fantasy. The teacher will read aloud the picture book fantasy Raising Dragons by Jerdine Nolan. The students will then use a graphic organizer to identify the elements of fantasy in the story.
Closure: Discuss with students that a fantasy does not have to have all of the elements, but it must have at least one.
