One of the stories we read during our folktale unit was Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears, a West African tale by Verna Aardema. Students retold the story by creating story sequence strips. After coloring and cutting out patterns of the animal characters in the story, students glued them in sequential order on to sentence strips. Underneath each illustration, students wrote a sentence explaining what the animal was doing.
