Tall Tales on Tour.
Renaud, Linda; Silk, Lynn
"Tall Tales on Tour" consists of a mobile unit of books, posters, puppets, plays, videos, teachers' guides and other resources designed to kindle enthusiasm and love for tall tales in students in grades 3-8 and to establish links with rural Washington County, Maine, schools. The program consists of three main components: (1) immersing students in tall tales activities across the curriculum; (2) developing a curriculum guide outlining specific activities; and (3) lending the unit to other rural schools in the area. Approximately 100 students in three schools in rural Maine participated in a variety of activities. Resources needed include overhead projectors, video cameras, tape recorders, and an all-purpose room or gymnasium for large group activities. Community volunteers participated in various activities. A suggested timeline is to spend the first half of the school year in developing activities and gathering materials, and implement the Tall Tales on Tour program during the second half of the school year.
