- Tell in your own words what folklore is. List some folklore stories, folk songs, or historical legends from your own state or part of the country. Play the Folklore Match Game in the handbook.
- Name at least five stories about American folklore. Point out on a United States map where they happened.
- Read two folklore stories and tell your favorite one to your den.
I printed the cards off onto colored card-stock so the print wouldn't go through and then I laminated them for durability (not required). The kids loved the game. Keep the matching game you just filled out handy in case you forget who did what!
I can't take the credit for creating this one. I found it at Strong Armor. The only problem was that it didn't print quite right for me. I emailed her and she sent it to me via email. I asked her if I could share it with you and she agreed.
I then printed 5 different folklore stories from http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/tall-tales/
You can print your own or use the ones I did by downloading them here. I also printed a map of the United States to bring in so we could locate where each folklore originated. We read the titles of each. The boys each took turns reading two of them to themselves. They each selected their favorite and summarized it for the group and showed us on the map were their story happened.
We had fun and it covered the entire Bear Achievement 4!
