A completely scripted out 4th Grade Poetry lesson plan on the Scottish Legend of the Selkie. This lesson is so complete that you can hand it over to a substitute teacher!
Using one of Scotland’s best-known legends about the Selkie, students about this part seal and part human creature. Please be advised that some of the stories written are not appropriate for elementary school aged children, as well as some of the pictures you will find on the internet. Therefore, we have created a lesson that centers around the legend itself rather than using a particular book.
