Our Fables lesson plan introduces the three key elements of fables, which are stories that use animal characteristics and are designed specifically to teach a lesson. Students are asked to engage their analytical and critical thinking skills as they hear and read fables, determine the moral for each, and explain the details that support their concluded moral for the fable. Students are also asked to engage their creativity to write their own fable and illustrate it with at least three drawings.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify three key elements of fables and read fables and determine the moral for each. Students will also be able to explain details that support their conclusion of what the moral of each fable is.
