The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

This is such a fun twist to the original Three Little Pigs! Not only is it entertaining, it's also educational! For my 4th grade class, I did a lesson comparing this story with the original. First I read parts from each story, and I purposefully chose the parts with the biggest differences along with some similarities. While the students were listening I had them record the characteristics of the wolf in the first story, and then in the second. After they had a character web organizer about the wolf completely filled, we took that information and completed a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the two stories. For fun after the lesson, they voted for whose story they believed: the wolf's or the pig's.
