A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a GT teacher named Pedro Delgado. Mr. Delgado was a finalist for TCEA’s Classroom Teacher of the Year. He shared a link to his class blog, and I stumbled upon a cute photo gallery of a project that his 4th graders did using real company logos in ads with fairytale characters. The posters made by the students cracked me up! I asked if he would mind if I shared his idea, and he gave me permission. This is a fun idea for using the “Multiple Perspectives” icon from Kaplan’s Depth and Complexity. You could really use the activity with any characters from history or fiction – not just fairytales. A couple of the pictures by Mr. Delgado’s 4th graders are below, but please check out the rest by visiting his class blog here.

When I read this post I said, “Hey I know him!” I was a finalist with him. 😉 Great job Pedro! #smallworld
I love this idea! We just finished our fairy tale unit, but I’m definitely going to incorporate a variation of this next year! Thank you for sharing.
I would love to see what your students create!
