The World of Cinderella Stories
First graders listen to traditional and nontraditional Cinderella stories and watch a video entitled "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters." Individually, children draw and illustrate the stories they have heard, create a story sequence, and write vocabulary words. In groups, 1st graders write their own Cinderella story and perform a puppet show for the class. Pupils compare and contrast Cinderella stories.
