Fairy Tale Activity - Jack and the Beanstalk

Teach Starter Publishing
4 mins | Years: 1 - 2

Use this video of the popular fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk to help introduce narratives to younger students and explore plot structure, characters and language features.

For ways to incorporate this into your literacy lessons take a look at our amazing Fairy Tales Collection.

This video shows the beginning of Jack and the Beanstalk. It does not contain the ending which allows it to be used for a number of activities such as:

  • write what you think is going to happen in the end
  • re-write an alternative ending to the traditional fairy tale
  • act out the ending.
