Fables, or short stories with a clear moral that typically involve animals, are a fun topic for students to learn. Fables exist across many different cultures and thus it's a topic many can relate to. The story of the patient tortoise and over-eager hare is a story that many will recognize.
Fables are short stories that typically offer a very clear moral lesson. For their simplicity and power, they are a good way for students to practice reading comprehension and analysis.
By the end of this lesson, students will understand the unique characteristics of a fable.
The Students are given ten questions in which they review elements found in fables. They are then asked to read the Ant and the Grasshopper and to identify key elements of the fable.
