This comprehensive Smartboard unit teaches students the genre of folktales. An introduction to folktale elements starts the unit. Interactive slides on fairy tales, pourquoi stories, fables, legends, and myths are included. Each type of folktale first gives specific characteristics about that particular folktale, then shows many example stories or traits from well known books for students to see and use as models. This Smartboard unit can be broken up into 5 different lessons, each focusing on one of the types of folktales listed.
