Lots of Lessons from Aesop

Aesop’s Fables offer young learners an opportunity to study figurative language. After reviewing theme, simile, alliteration, and metaphor, model for your pupils how to identify examples of these devices in the fable. Class members then work in groups to locate examples in a second story. Finally, individuals work independently on a third fable to demonstrate their understanding. Links to Aesop’s Fables and an assessment rubric are included.

Lesson Planet has changed my whole teaching style. I am able to customize my lesson plans for relevance not by what is already available. I like the relevance to issues facing today's youth.
