How We Did It


1. We read several tall tales and became familiar with the characteristics of what make a tall tale.
2. We also read at least one other version of each tall tale to compare and contrast the retelling of a basic story.

3. We viewed videos of several versions of the tall tales we had read and compared them to the written versions.

4. We chose one character we would like to honor via a commemorative stamp. A particular part of the story was chosen and a short narrative was written to accompany the stamp. The results can be viewed from the index page.
