Fables Re-Mixed: A Reader's Theater
In this unit, 3rd grade students will be selecting one of Aesop's many fables and figuring out a way to make the moral from the story relevant in today's society. They will write their version of the story as a drama and they will use paper bag puppets as the characters to tell the story. One of the characters in the story must be the student(s) who wrote it. They will create appropriate backdrops and then we will record their "puppet shows."
