Exaggeration, Folktales, and Characters. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
Designed for a third-grade literature curriculum, this unit integrates language arts with visual arts, music, and social studies. In the unit, third graders use elements of exaggeration to create folktales, work with sixth graders to edit the tale, and create 3-dimensional representations of their main characters. The following lessons are part of the unit: Exaggeration, Folktales, and Characters Lessons 1-4: Introduction; Exaggeration, Folktales, and Characters Lessons 5-8: Writing; Exaggeration, Folktales, and Characters Lessons 9-11; and Exaggeration, Folktales, and Characters Lesson 12: Sharing Party. Each lesson in the unit offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; cites subjects and subtopics; notes equipment and materials needed; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. Each lesson also identifies instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; and suggests assessment and extension activities. (NKA)
