I created this project to teach students all about tall tales. There are two parts of this project. The first part focuses on reading tall tales and teaching the elements of a tall tale. The second part focuses on having students plan and write their own tall tales.
This project includes half-sheets that are easy for students to glue into writing journals or spiral notebooks. This creates a nice, neat, organized tall tale section in student writing journals.
