Because we want our students to become active and positive citizen in our community our next project will be to create a fable. They will work on their creative side by thinking outside of the box to find a problem in our society and represent it with a short story.
What is a fable? It’s a short story with animals as characters that has a moral at the end. The Turtoise and The Hare is a good example : The characters are a Tortoise (wood turtle) and a Hare (wild bunny) and the moral of the story is: « Don’t brag about your lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race »
