Activity Overview


The Fantastic Mr. Fox book is perfect for practicing summarization, since it is short, but also contains many important plot elements. Students transitioning from summarizing short stories to summarizing lengthier chapter books will benefit from having to synthesize the short chapters of this book into an entire book summary. The storyboard format will help students practice being concise and thinking critically about the importance of events.

Consider having students plan their storyboard using a blank template, prior to creating the full storyboard online. Students should begin with the narrative in each box before adding character dialogue. This will allow them to focus on the purpose of summarizing and determine important events before getting distracted by the details of the storyboard. Students can also be given a set number of frames to use for the storyboard, to promote conciseness. After planning with a template, students can compare the important events they chose with a partner, and the class could discuss why different events in the story were included in the storyboard rather than others.
