Informational powerpoint introducing Aesop and his famous stories. I use this powerpoint at the very beginning of Latin II before we read a bunch of short fables together, but you could use it easily in a history or even an English class. Written for high school, but could be used in middle school too. The link at the end is to a youtube clip of a Fractured Fairy Tale (the chicken and the cat), just in case that link eventually breaks. Afterwards I typically have the students write their own Aesop's fable for homework using the qualities described in the powerpoint.
