The texts for six of Grimm's stories (The Frog King, Bearskin, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, King Thrushbeard, and Cinderella), translated into English from the original German. Available to accompany our "Grimm Stories" unit, or just for entertaining reading.
This unit takes a different approach to Grimm. Starting with a straight reading of six stories (available in one download on abcteach), the unit then addresses deeper meanings (What does Cinderella's shoe symbolize?), and finishes with a humorous approach (what would a social worker say about Hansel and Gretel?)
An introduction to the famous Grimm brothers, the source of their stories and their motivations for collecting them, and a reflection on the stories' resonance today are all presented in this reading comprehension.
