This activity requires students to read a short fable, identify the moral, and list events from the fable that serve as evidence of the moral. This activity has titles listed but if these fables are not available, the teacher can change the fable title given on the sheet; the activity is not fable specific. The focus is on the students identifying the moral and going back to the text to support the moral choice.
This activity is directly related to Common Core Anchor Standard 2, which states, "Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas".
Students can present their work, since they will be reading different fables. The presentation meets Speaking and Listening standards.
