Tier 1 Story Jacob’s Ladder Goals & Objectives Habits of Mind
The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals. "I have never yet been beaten," said he, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me." The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge." "That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you all the way." "Keep your boasting till you've won," answered the Tortoise. "Shall we race?" So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap. The Tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare awoke from his nap, he saw the Tortoise just near the winning- post and could not run up in time to save the race. Then the Tortoise said: "Slow but steady progress wins the race."

Defend your answer with story examples or your own personal experience.
Choose one of the writing ideas to complete. Be creative. 1.Plan a new ending for the story. Include 4 different settings in your new ending. Produce a wordless book or strategy of your choice to retell the story ending. 2. Draw a model of the racecourse on a 11” x 18” piece of construction paper. Discuss different symbols you might use. A red star might show the starting spot. A green triangle is the tree where the hare stopped. Glue a small picture of the hare on a paper clip and do the same with the tortoise. Generate a Hare and Tortoise game. S uggested project strategies: Create a puppet show; Design a poster, flyer, brochure; Make wordless books
