Product Description
My students had a great time analyzing these stories and reading/presenting them to the class. For each book, students will define vocabulary and determine the following:

Type of Folktale
Theme/Lesson
Cultural Values

For my lower classes I read the stories aloud and had classroom discussions about the worksheet. For more advanced classes I turned this in to a group assignment (instructions attached).

For this lesson you will need a copy of the following children's books (or you may edit the worksheet to add your own titles):

Anansi the Spider: A Tale from Ashanti by Gerald McDermott
Once a Mouse by Marcia Brown
The Beckoning Cat by Koko Nishizuka
The Way Meat Loves Salt by Nina Jaffe
How Chipmunk Got His Stripes by Joesph Bruchac & James Bruchac
The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Mara Alperin
