3rd Grade Project: Real-Life Lessons in Fables & Fairy Tales

What real life lessons can we learn from fables and fairy tales? This was the question posed to all third grade students during a recent interdisciplinary PBL unit at Broadus Wood Elementary School in Earlysville, VA. Classroom teachers and specialists worked collaboratively with students over the course of several weeks to identify problems in our school community and used the lessons learned from fables and fairy tales to fix them.
