This is a handout, that would accompany the PowerPoint presentation also at this site, for a one day lesson on the Iroquois folktale The Song of the Hermit Thrush, as found in the book Legends of the Iroquois. The lesson contains a poetry link with comparisons and vocabulary embedded within. It also contains leveled questions, some multiple choice or short response, with a graphic organizer and creative writing prompt to conclude. It is ready to print and use. I would take one class period for a middle school ELA class.
