Folklore tells the real story of a culture. Readers experience the struggles, fears, dreams, and beliefs of the common people as they read retellings of the stories that were passed down through generations of oral tradition.

Today, I want you to explore some folklore from around the world. Use the links below to choose 3 stories from 3 different countries/cultural groups. Bookmark them or save them to your hard drive so that you can find them later!

Use your stories to complete the handout.
