Resource Description

In this pack you will find a PowerPoint that introduces the concept of genres and then goes onto to describe the mystery genre. Please note that this PowerPoint is NOT editable due to the clipart contained within it. Also, the PowerPoint will start on its own once you click on it. Just click to advance each slide.

Also included in this pack is a genre vocabulary activity. This is a puzzle activity which includes 10 different puzzles made of 2 pieces each. One piece has a vocabulary word and one piece has its definition. To save ink and paper, you may want to print the puzzles 2 pages per sheet by adjusting your printer settings.

A 4th-6th grade version of this activity is available HERE.

This activity pairs well with some of my other genre packs:
Or purchase the Genre Mega Pack which includes both the genre posters and bookmarks, but at a reduced price
