Aesop’s Fables

Aesop’s Fables is a different Interactive Whiteboard resource to usual. This one is similar to the alphabet books published on this site last year. The text and pictures come from a book now in the public domain due to its age. They’ve been put into an interactive book for class reading. The morals for each fable are hidden by a label – clicking it will remove the label.

To accompany this IWB resource is a printable version of the stories. There is also a sheet that contains the morals. This can be used as a class exercise where the students read the fables and match the most appropriate moral to it.
