This unit examines 4 of Aesop's fables. Students have the opportunity to determine the moral of each fable, or there is the option to give the moral with the fable. Using text-based evidence, students will determine the moral, discuss character traits of the major characters in each fable, describe how characters react to major events in a fable, recount and sequence a fable, and compare and contrast two similar fables. There is the option of culminating the unit with writing an original fable!
*In order to post this product during the TpT sale, there is one component missing. I am in the process of creating a 2nd grade appropriate character traits list. In the meantime, I have found some great ones that are geared for upper grade students that I have whittled down for my students. Check back soon for this addition!
