The Tortoise and the Hare
An Aesop Fable
In the story The Tortoise and the Hare the moral of the story is that you
should not brag. In addition, sometimes slow and steady wins the race. This is a
fun story to incorporate into science and physical education. You can use it in
science when talking about amphibians or mammals. The students would also
enjoy a race based on the story. I would have them engage in a race as a hare and
then as a tortoise. I would use this fable in the lower grades 1-3.
