Les contes de Charles Perrault

The students of 4th grade have been studying traditional tales by Charles Perrault, many of which they had heard about. The interesting part for them was to compare the version of the tale they knew with the one written by Perrault.

First, we studied together Le Petit Chaperon Rouge and Barbe Bleue and explored the structure and the morale of the traditional tale. Then, they individually worked on a tale that they presented to their peers in the classroom. We had presentations of Riquet à la Houppe, Le Petit Poucet, La Belle au Bois Dormant and Peau d’Ane.

They did a fantastic job that you can see in the classroom.
