Children’s Stories from Other Cultures

Learning Targets:
I can better understand other cultures by reading their children’s literature.

Possible Projects:  Animation, Illustration
I can apply animation techniques to create a cartoon or photo animation based on a story from another culture.
I can make connections between literature and visual imagery.

You can find Children’s Stories from other cultures at the following Links:

*Published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan: Japanese Children’s Stories

* of the tales on the World of Tales website came from Project Gutenberg, but are a little more easily navigated on World of Tales–less clicks to start reading 🙂
