Description

Add a cultural twist to your fairy tale unit with Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story from China. There are many versions of the Cinderella tale, but this one is believed to be the original version - written 1,000 years before the European one.

Our response activities were crafted using the six levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, a framework for focusing on higher-order thinking skills. The taxonomies (classifications) are arranged from simple and concrete tasks to complex and abstract ones.

There are 3 activities for each level, allowing for individualization and choice.
