Contemporary Fairy Tales

Eighth graders listen Steven Kellog's, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Raymond Briggs, Jim and the Beanstalk. They use a Venn diagram to compare the two elements of the two stories. They write and publish an original contemporary fairy tale based on a traditional one. Finally, the eighth grade students read their tales to elementary students.
