PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PLEASE READ: This is a zipped file with PDFs of 4 of my tall tale story activity resources. If you purchased any of my individual tall tale activity products (link below), this zipped folder contains the SAME files.

The tall tale stories in this bundled product are lesser known tall tales. I use these stories with my students who have already studied the standard tall tale stories like Paul Bunyan. These 4 humorous tall tales make great additions to a tall tale unit.

The bundle includes activities that support standard reading skills as well as enhance analysis of tall tale characteristics. You may not have time to complete every activity for each story; pick and choose a few that work for your group.
