This 10-day writing unit explores Tall Tales and their elements. Students will read and research Tall Tales, and take notes on their characteristics. Then, students will use the pre-writing organizer to develop a Tall Tale of their own. The pre-writing organizer includes fill-in-the-blanks and prompts to help guide students in this Writing Process step. Also included is a rubric for final draft scoring. Ideal for 4th, 5th and 6th grades.
