Folktale Slideshows

In our 5th grade reading class we have been reading and studying various African folktales for the last several weeks. The culminating project was for students to work in pairs or threes to plan and write their own folktale complete with characters, setting, problem, solution, and lesson. After planning and writing, our students illustrated the major events from the folktales and then created a narrated slideshow using a free service called Mybrainshark. Take a look and listen our folktale projects.
