PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This close reading interactive notebook features the fable, The Tortoise and the Hare. I included TWO original passages - one is the well known version of the fable, and the other is an updated version about two boys taking a test. The updated version has the same moral but with a different plot. Use these two fables to compare two texts written by the same author! The activities that go along with the fables require the students to analyze aspects of the text while providing text evidence for their responses.

*The thumbnails posted are blurry because I had to reduce the file size in order to post it. They are clear and legible in the product.
