American Folktales and Tall Tales

Learners explore the elements of American folktales. They discuss how they are passed on from generation to generation, how they use exaggeration, and how they convey a message or make a point. Students identify common elements of tall tales, and write a tall tale of their own, which they read aloud to the class.
