1. Locate a book of fairy tales. For older students, the stories by Davy Crockett may be more appropriate. The links listed in sources under websites may be sufficient for your sample.
2. Have the students read the story or read it with/to them. (Teachers may decide to make this assignment a small-group effort, depending on the level of their students).
3. For younger students, have them draw a picture (using computer software or paper and crayons) of their favorite part of the tale. Instruct older students to write a fairy tale of their own (using a word processor or paper and writing utensil.)
4. Compile a book of folk/fairy tales drawn or written by the students for distribution in the school.
