Who doesn't love a good story about "the one that got away"? This story by David Shannon is so outlandish it is more like a tall tale, but whoever heard of a fish or a fisherman as a tall tale hero? Move over Pecos Bill and Johnny Appleseed, let me introduce you to Jangles.
In this lesson you will have the help you need to not only teach your students about tall tale heroes, but you will be doing so in a truly engaging, fun way with this exaggerated tale.
Have a blast with your students reading "Jangles- a BIG fish story" searching for evidence that will help you decide if this fish story is a tall tale or not! You will have to let me know.....
