Hyperbole And Paul Bunyan


Whenever I introduce Tall Tales to my students they are hooked!  Whether it's Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill or John Henry, my students love hearing about their many adventures.  My favorite tall tale hero of all though, is Paul Bunyan.  I don't know if it's his size that mesmerized me as a child, or whether he was the first Tall Tale hero I learned about.  Either way, my love for Tall Tales inspired me to create this free Paul Bunyan and Hyperbole lesson to introduce my students to Paul Bunyan, and the concept of hyperbole.  Paul Bunyan has so many examples of hyperbole that the two themes seemed to go hand in hand with one another.  Enjoy!!
