Hey, how do I download it?
This is a warmer, and there is nothing to download. It's just an idea for your lesson, not a worksheet.
After a class discussion and reading on a topic like public education in the U.S., have students write an animal fable that ends in a moral related to the topic. Show a model of an animal fable as necessary, such as the tortoise and the hare, which is relatively easy to understand with a simple moral on the importance of being patient and not quitting. Students can then work in groups creating their fables which they can share with the class as time allows.
This is effective in that it gets students thinking more deeply on a topic and what morals can be drawn from it. They also have to work together and be creative in coming up with the fable.
