Aesop Fables are little stories with a big punch line - a moral lesson. It often includes animals, plants, forces of nature which take on a human qualities.

Using this as a base, one can create a language arts lesson plan and help students to write a little story, with only a few characters, in a setting, facing a problem and coming to a conclusion as well as teaching a moral lesson.
