I created this poster to help students consider the characteristics of fairy tales and folk tales; it emphasizes how fairy tales are one type of folktale. We used it as a discussion tool and then students kept a copy for their language arts notebooks.
This file contains one color and one black and white version.
Note: definitions of folk and fairy tales vary. Please check the document by looking at the preview to determine if the characteristics on this poster match those that you are teaching.
