In this folktales lesson, students participate in a jigsaw activity that requires them to read "The Owl Never Sleeps as Night," "Why the Lizard Often Nods," "Tappin, the Land Turtle" and "The Invisible Tortoise." Young scholars note the parts of the tales that have an American flair and discuss their findings.
