Tall Tales in Fourth Grade
“Next thing you know, Billy Big grabbed that gator by its tail and flung it all the way to Alabama!” If you pass by a fourth grade classroom in the next week or two, you might just hear a tall tale being told. During their unit on tall tales the fourth graders have learned about such legends as Paul Bunyan, John Henry, and many others. This project combines the study of Florida in the 1800s and language arts, as the students create their very own tall tale hero and story. After sharing their tall tales with grandparents, reading buddies, and classmates, these fun and unique tall tales will be on display in the fourth grade hallway. Stop by for a smile!
