This collection of VERY FUN problem-based learning (PBL) resources works great with your reading unit on fables. The students will gain thinking strategies and content knowledge while solving open-ended problems. These lessons work with your balanced literacy model, include higher order thinking skills and increase the rigor in your lesson plans. This is everything and more that admin is looking for during walk-throughs.
Each PBL includes instructions that you can modify to meet the needs of your students, a worksheet, and extension ideas. After using these lessons your students will be able to retell the fables, ask and answer questions about them, and have a deeper understanding of the morals due to the PBL activities.
Plans and worksheets included for:
The Ant and the Grasshopper
The Lion and the Mouse
Belling the Cat
