I created this Folktale Writing Activity from the inspiration of Mrs.Kellet's 2nd Grade Class blog. http://mrskellettsclass.blogspot.com/2012/05/folktales.html . She had her students write a story about how some animals got their "long trunks", "spots", or "eight legs". It will fit perfectly into any folktale unit. I know all students will love this creative writing activity. Students will write their stories and illustrate them. Print the "How an ________ Got Its _______" tags on colored paper and print the blank writing paper and you are set. I hope your class enjoys it.
