The Trinity Academy fourth grade students read and watched fables and folktales from around the world. They discovered that fables and folktales teach a lesson or a moral. They also saw that many of the stories featured talking animals! The students were then given the task of writing an original fable that might have been told long ago. Each student was assigned a country. They researched the country that would be the setting for their story and found out about the geography and the animals native to the area. They used these facts to write their story.
