Cycle 4 focused on Language Arts & Communication. Fourth Grade students studied fables. They read some fables, analyzed their structure and defined the genre: a fable is a short story that is used to teach morals/lessons to kids using talking animals.
Students were then challenged to think of ways to take fables into the 21st century. They brainstormed technology skills and lessons that kids today need to learn. Working in groups, they brought fables into the 21st century by creating new stories that address the needs of the 21st century student. The audience they hope to reach are students younger than them, those in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Check out the amazing and creative work of our 4th Grade students! We hope you enjoy their fables!
