Spooky Short Story: Draw What You Hear - The Great White Bear and the Trolls

Teacher Lauren, MAT
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(255)
In this story time class, we will read a fairy tale about a group of scary trolls & the giant bear they never expected to see. Based on what we hear in the story, we will draw what we think the characters look like.

Class experience

Students will:
*practice listening skills, specifically character descriptions
*interpret descriptions to draw characters
*answer recall questions about the story's plot and characters
*make story predictions
*share their work in a small group setting (optional)
"Draw what you hear" is an activity I used to do with my students as a public school teacher. It's a fun way to practice character description.

Students may use the handout provided or they can use their own paper to draw on. They can also add color if they want to.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
While this story is great for Halloween, it isn't too scary. The moment the trolls first appear is suspenseful at most.
The original 1800s Norse story is entitled, "The Cat on the Dovrefell," which has been adapted by Katharine Pyle (1863-1938) as "The Great White Bear and the Trolls." Both stories are in the public domain.

I have made my own minor changes to the story, including changing the setting to Halloween night and adding a few more descriptions so students have more to draw.
