This supplemental unit to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was developed as part of
the DSU Reading Practices and Principals class (Fall 99). This assignment was designed
to help teachers and students use the Internet to find out new and exciting information
about a story that they know so well.

        The authors of the book Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are the Brothers
Grimm, Randall Jarrell (Translator), Nancy Buckert (Illustrator), Jacob Ludwig Carl
Grimm, Wilhelm K. Grimm. A biography of them is found on their homepage located at This next site has a listing of all the books and/or
stories that the Grimm Brothers wrote. The site is as follows: By clicking on any of the names
that are linked above, you can look at other books that they have written or worked with.

        A biography about the book, Snow White, can be located at: Here the developer of
the web site found many other places the teachers can find out information about Snow
       These are located at where the lessons
can be directly implemented into what the national standards indicate.

          Description of Materials, Activities and Web sites
         (Writing) For this activity, the students will be able to go to this site, write a fairy
tail story and then enter the contest. If the teacher wishes, she can use this as an extra
credit assignment, a regular assignment, or for the students to just do during their free
time. The site for this is as follows:

        (Art) This is a teacher lesson plan design for working with Snow White and the
Seven Dwarfs. The teacher can use this activity and change any of the ideas that they
may wish. The students will be able to draw their favorite scene after reading the story.
They are to include all the characters that are involved into this section of the story.
Some examples of the type of art that they will be expected to do can be found here: The students
would need to click on either Image Gallery 1 or 2 and then decide on a picture that they
would like to “copy”. The students can also make up their own scene and use their
imaginations to draw their own, unique picture.

        (Art) This is another activity associated with Snow White. This lesson was
designed for use with another book, but it can be changed for any book that shows
emotions. The students are to make a flag out of streamers, strips of paper, or even
ribbon. They are then to glue them to a stick or wooden dowel and it is in working
fashion. When the students hear an emotion in the story, they need to wave their flag in
the manner that the story is making them feel. The site that is incorporated with this
activity is as follows:

       (Health) Apples are discussed in the story of Snow White, so a lesson on the food
pyramid would be a great way to incorporate health into the classroom. This site is a
teacher lesson plan that identifies how a teacher can introduce the food pyramid into the
classroom activities. The lesson is gone into further detail in the site to follow.
( A copy of the food pyramid online
is found at The teacher can
allow the students to go into the site and do some work online with the food pyramid
also. One thing to remember to mention is that the poisonous apples would not be
included into the food pyramid and then the teacher may want to go into an activity
regarding safety.

        (Safety) Teachers can look at the following sites to discover more about the
safety issues that the students will be exposed to when reading Snow White and the
Seven Dwarfs. They can use the information to become more knowledgeable about the
