Projects

Writing Project – Continue daily journal entry by writing what you do every day. (If you don’t know what to write, write down a fable you can remember being told to you. What’s the lesson you learned in the fable?)

Storytelling Project – Think of all the parts that make up a fable and see if you can create your own. Make sure you have characters (animals are good), a story with a problem to solve, and a lesson learned at the end. Think of lessons you may have learned recently. How did it go? Write out the story and tell it to family members at home.

Art Project – Tell the story of Androcles and the Lion in a comic strip. See if you can retell the fable using pictures! If you don’t want to do it online, draw your own version of the story on a piece of paper.
