Learn It Town Students from Thailand, South Korea, United States, Netherlands, and Saudi Arabia enjoy American Tall Tales. Today they learned about Bigfoot Wallace, Davy Crockett, Casey Jones, Johnny Appleseed and John Henry. — with Andreas Franz, Roseofsharon Overland, Lowri Mills, Tina Toshi, Maha Ashland and Emerald.
A tall tale is a story about a person who is larger than life — or bigger than someone could really be in real life. These stories involve a lot of exaggeration or hyperbole. This makes a tall tale very funny.
Each student read their tale to the group. Some shared songs to go along with the tale.
