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.
The tale of a boy who trades a panda for a pepper (??) is available at four different levels. This unit includes detailed reading comprehension and inference questions, and more activities appropriate for upper elementary readers.
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?)
