I love studying tall tales with my students. They are always so mesmerized by them. Throughout the course of the year, we read many of them together. My favorite tall tale has to be Paul Bunyan. Just the idea of a lumberjack able to clear forests with his ax is pretty amazing. I love using tall tales to introduce forms of figurative language to my students. I created this free Paul Bunyan and Hyperbole lesson to introduce my students to Paul Bunyan, and the concept of hyperbole. The best part is, it’s also has a pop up book which students put together. My students absolutely adore it! Enjoy!!
