This activity helps students identify the bias and reliability of sources through the story of the Three Little Pigs. Students will compare two different versions of the famous story, and analyze them for their reliability and potential bias. They then must decide which version is more reliable, and back up their claim with facts from the stories or their analysis.
Materials needed: Walt Disney's Silly Symphony of the Three Little Pigs, and a copy of The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka.
This worksheet can be used in conjunction with the Three Levels of Questioning activity.
