I really like this lesson plan! I definitely think I will add it to my lessons this week in honor of Halloween so I can still integrate some reading and writing in something the students will be excited and engaged about. I really like how you used a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast the different versions of the same story. Graphic organizers are so helpful for visual learners. Also, I teach 5th grade and I know one of core standards also includes comparing and contrasting the same stories from differing points of view.
I love legends and the history of legends. I've been an Art teacher and FACS teacher for over 25 years, I am currently obtaining my endorsement in Language Arts. You have a Venn diagram, have you ever thought about using google draw. Here is a link to a Venn diagram for you. https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1gQr_0e1AzW0ziV3PEc_usSIM42VcfZ__aqOHEbbyQPs/copy
I love audiobooks. This book is in the public domain. Have you ever used, Google Podcast? Here is a link to the audio book. I love the narrator. https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5ib29rc3Nob3VsZGJlZnJlZS5jb20vYm9vay9MZWdlbmQtb2YtU2xlZXB5LUhvbGxvdy9mZWVk/episode/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5hcmNoaXZlLm9yZy9kb3dubG9hZC9zbGVlcHlob2xsb3dfMTIwNl9saWJyaXZveC9sZWdlbmRvZnNsZWVweWhvbGxvd18wMV9pcnZpbmdfNjRrYi5tcDM?hl=en&ved=2ahUKEwiRhvOzpdDzAhXzGzQIHVLBDIYQjrkEegQIBxAI&ep=6
