Buckle up! It's almost time to leave. But before we do, you need to read the special tips below about your trip.
You and your classmates were chosen for this trip because we heard that you have been learning about tall tales in your class. On this trip you will listen to four tall tale adventures. Let's take a minute to watch a slideshow about tall tales to review what you already know!
Each person in your group will have one of these important jobs to complete on the trip:
1) Exaggerator - This person will find and record all of the exaggerations in each tall tale adventure.
2) Travel Guide - This person will record all of the places and sites that are visited during the adventures.
3) Super Mapper - This person will complete a character map of each "superhuman" character that they meet during the adventures.
4) Problem Solver - This person will tell about the problem in each adventure and the funny way it is solved.
Your group will work together after the adventure to create a new tall tale adventure for the class to enjoy! Oh, no – the bus is leaving without you! Hurry! See if you can catch it by clicking on the moving bus below.
