Teaching Theme with Fables - The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse

Students will identify the theme, moral, lesson, and central message of a story. Students will use text evidence, identify the theme, understand vocabulary, identify story elements, retell and summarize. Aesop's fables are a wonderful way to teach these important skills. The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse is a perfect fable with a wonderful theme.
