Trick or "TRICKSTER!"
This unit is PERFECT for the month of October, but can be used anytime. It can be used with any trickster tale, but I LOVE to learn from the following:
Anansi, the spider, Jabuti the Tortoise, Zomo, the Rabbit, Monkey and Cuy, the guinea pig...
If you need to teach trickster tales as required by TEKS and Common Core, then this unit will engage your students and their understanding of what makes these tales delightful and fun.
