This graphic organizer would be perfect to use during a folktale unit, but can also be used after reading a single folktale. Characters, setting, elements of folktales, beginning/middle/end, and comparing and contrasting are all covered by this one graphic organizer! There is even an opportunity to incorporate global awareness by including the origin of the folktale.
Some suggestions for use would be to 1) project it on an interactive whiteboard or under a document camera to complete as a whole group, 2) have students fill it out with a partner or in a small group, and 3) assessment individual students' understanding.
A full global folktale unit that includes this graphic organizer will be coming soon, so be sure to check back!
