This Internet Activity consists of 6 worksheets for exploring the classical literature of Aesop's Fables. The worksheets guide students through numerous fables on this website:
Students are directed to define unfamiliar vocabulary, read the fable, take a 5 question quiz, and record their score. The fables convey good character lessons. A short history paragraph is included on the last page to introduce students to Aesop, the Greek slave, better known as "the greatest storyteller." I am presently using this in my third grade classroom during the whole book reading of Aesop's Fables, but it could be used in 2nd-5th grades depending on the student's reading level. The interest level is universal. This can be used by a whole class in a computer lab or by an individual student. I allow 30 minutes for each activity. Students finishing early can go to the Fables Activities Tab for additional fun.
