Tall Tale Story

to:All Students

In class, we started writing our own tall-tale stories.  Students that need extra time should write at home to complete the assignment.  Write it in 1-3 paragraphs.  Write about a friend of Paul Bunyan. 

Some questions you can try to answer:  What is he/she like?  What do they do?  Who are they?  What should we know about them? When did they live? Where did they live/travel?  Why should we like/dislike them?  How did they do what they do?
