This PDF file starts with a description of the characteristics of folk tales, which was taken from Zaner-Bloser Literacy Plus booklet on Teaching Folktales. The file includes 5 worksheets I made to use while studying folk tales. The first is a printable form with questions that will apply to any folk tale you choose to have students read. The second worksheet is a form to guide students through writing their own folk tales. The third is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet/quiz for the folk tale Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters. The fourth is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet/quiz for the folk tale The Weaving of a Dream. The fifth is a story map to fill in for the folk tale It Could Always Be Worse. These stories and worksheets help students understand and enjoy folk tales.
