African-American Folktales

Students are introduced to the characteristics of folktales and their purpose. As a class, they listen to a folktale, answer questions about the characters and share which part they enjoyed the best. In groups, they compare and contrast the various folktales they have had read to them and work together to make puppets of the characters.
