Comparing and Contrasting Fables

Students compare and contrast two versions of a fable and draw a cartoon to illustrate the moral. In this James Thurber and Aesop lesson, students read both versions of "The Fox and the Crow" and look for similarities and differences in the telling of the two fables. Students explain the use of various literary terms and discuss the moral of the tales. Students draw a cartoon to illustrate the moral of one of the fables they read.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
