Before viewing, have elementary students research well-known fairy tales. After viewing, they choose a tale to rework through change of gender, animal/species, age, environment, or culture, and then tell it through animation, writing, acting, or drawn/photographed visuals. Have students pose media literacy questions: what qualities do we associate with animals in popular culture? How does the form of a story change our understanding of it? What societal values do fairy tales reveal?
