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.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
