Sitti and the Cats: A Tale of Friendship - A Webquest
Step 3: Creating your own fable
Congratulations on getting this far!
Taking the information that you have learned from the previous two steps, you are going to write your own fable. BUT FIRST, I would like you to preview a few different stories from the Middle East.
The following books in our classroom are to used for this webquest. They contain themes found important to the Middle Eastern culture. I would like you to read at least 2 of the following books and record the "questions to consider" and your answers into your investigative notebook.
*Book list has been adapted from a Muslim book list
Remember: Please record the title, author, and date you read each book into your notebook. This information will document each book that you have read, and will go at the top of each page, before the "questions to consider."
Task: Are you ready to create your own fable? Give it a try! Your draft will go inside your investigative notebook, but make sure you label this page with a title and the date.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Do you need a more detailed outline to help you write? Check this out!
Completion: Congratulations! You've successfully completed this webquest and rescued the kitten! When you turn in your investigative notebooks, be sure you name is on everything. Also, please be sure to include any additional papers that you may have used during this webquest (for example: did you use the guideline to writing a fable? If so, staple that in your notebook).
*TEACHERS NOTE: The guideline to writing a fable is actually taken from C-R-E-A-T-E for Mississippi: Challenging Regional Educators to Advance Technology for Education. To view their homepage, click here
