Grade 5 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 9

A RAINFOREST FOLKTALE: DETERMINING THE MESSAGE OF “THE WINGS OF THE BUTTERFLY,” A TUKUNA PEOPLE TALE

The folk tale is read aloud in order for students to enjoy the flow of the story. This lesson purposefully does not involve an in-depth analysis of the folk tale, given that the overall focus of the unit is much more on informational text.
