Folktales and Ecology: Animals and Humans in Cooperation and Conflict

Story elements such as conflict, character analysis, resolution, and moral are discussed and charted as elementary children read folktales involving animals. An element of science is also introduced as learners discover what a keystone species is and consider the role animals play in the ecosystem. Complete with worksheets, extensions, and links to stories the class will read, this is easily adaptable to younger grades.

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
