Description

This lesson should be used with fourth and fifth grade students. It can also be used for middle school.

Students will learn about fables and write their own fable using one of their pets (if they have one) or make up a pet and name.

A fable is using an animal as the main character and have the animal take on human characteristics.

For example, I wrote a book using my newest dog, Crissy LeeAnn, as the main character, and she told about her experience as she first entered her new home with my and my other dogs. Crissy LeeAnn is a terrier/chihuahua and is three years old.
