Grade 4 Fables project teaches many skills, shares lessons

Every picture might tell a story, but a fable teaches a life lesson – and presenting it showcases many skills. Harry Hoag fourth graders capped off their study of traditional literature by developing a readers’ theatre production to demonstrate their comprehension of the fables genre.

Fables feature talking animals who tell a story that teaches a life lesson, and the fables project provides a great opportunity for students to work together.

After learning about different fables and their morals, the students worked as a group to write a screenplay, create and decorate a colorful set, and build puppets and props. They then performed their fables live, in front of their classmates and teachers.

Their presentations were very impressive. View their video and learn the moral of their stories!
