V.1, Pourquoi Tales

Book - 1998
Rate this:

Traditional pourquoi tales (how-and-why stories) offer many exciting opportunities for learning. Kraus' bibliography and activity guide helps you design exciting story times and extend and explore tales with students. Activity pages (e.g., Venn diagrams, shadow puppets, multimedia projects), teaching ideas, a list of story themes, an annotated bibliography of further reading, and other materials can be used to prepare story hours, art and drama projects, literature reading units, cultural explorations, and science and nature studies. A convenient feature of this guide is the extensive chart that organizes pourquoi tales by theme, topic, and motif so they can be used as multicultural links to other areas of study. Tales are also organized by cultural and geographical groups, providing opportunities for integrating multicultural concepts into science, literature, and social studies.
