In one of my seventh grade classes we're discussing different types of conflicts. We began our current short story unit with the story, "All Summer in a Day," by Ray Bradbury. To help them visualize conflicts, I wrote examples beneath the "umbrellas" - Internal and External. Then they can read examples of Man V. Self, Man V. Man, Man V. Nature, and Man V. Society from the story. We'll refer to this as we continue the unit.
After teaching the different types of conflict, this activity is a fun way to assess your students' knowledge.Students will read the different scenarios, then decide what type of conflict is represented by the scenario. Then students will color the squares based on the type of conflict.My students love a fun coloring activity and I love that the activity is tied to standards.
