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 perfect into any folktale unit. I know my students will love it. I will have them write their stories and illustrate them.
