Do your kids like “tall tales”? The stories are so wild and a lot of fun to teach!

As I was scouring Pinterest this past week, I came across some printables for Paul Bunyan and Johnny Appleseed. It reminded me of stories that I learned when I was in school. It got me thinking that I have never taught my children any of these stories or read them any “tall tales”! Thus began my search for free printables to create my own Tall Tales unit study for the kids.

Here are some fun resources I found for teaching Tall Tales:
