Help please!  My students will read the story of Guy de Maussapant �A piece of string �  Can you give me ideas as to activities that I could do with them derived from the story?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Bernice
I didn�t know this short story so I just read it and I liked it.
I did a google and came across these.  Maybe you can get some ideas from them:
Write a play / create a boardgame / draw a cartoon

If the story is short, you can break the story into pieces of text on pieces of paper.

Stick them all around the classroom.
Ask students to work in pairs, one will go to papers to read, remember and go back to their partners to dictate what they �ve read.
It is really funny. My students love it.
