Comparative Writing

We're having lots of fun learning the 7-steps of writing an effective comparative piece.  
Today the boys and girls received their first assignment.

They watched this video and began their Venn diagrams that would help them compare the two characters. 

The kids watched the video and they were stunned. It was so fun to see them on the edge of their seats as the plot-line unfolded! 

But then they got real mad at the end.  
That part wasn't so fun. ;)  

I told the boys and girls I'd post the video here so they could work on their Venn diagram at home if they wished.
