Those Fabulous Fables

A video leads off this activity on fables, introducing the class to this important form of traditional storytelling. The group defines fable and hears an explanation of the origin of this type of folk tale. They summarize the story they watch, state the moral, and relate the moral to their own experiences. Finally, small groups retell a fable, placing it in modern context. A fun lesson sure to get even your young boys engaged!
