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.
