A Europe of Tales

Friday, August 10th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

A Europe of Tales

So, the Snow White Web site we looked at last week really got me thinking about other fairy tales and I was able to find this awesome site that just so happens to come in eight different languages, while it explores tales from all over Europe! It does require a Flash Player, which you can get here for free!

Once the site loads, you will see that the navigation is done by country. Choose to learn about tales from Iceland, Scotland, Finland, Brittany or Italy. If you scroll over each country’s strip, the animated character will pop up and give you a brief introduction to that section. Click the name of the country you want to explore to enter that section.

The section will pop up in its own window and load. You will then be able to choose which tale you’d like to hear. When you choose a story, I’d like to point out the links at the bottom the page: Info, Photo Gallery, Map and Tasks.

Info – Here you will learn background information about the country you are reading tales from.

Photo Gallery – Here you will see real images that relate to the story you are reading. I found this to be really helpful, because if you’re reading about a specific place or item, you can see it too!

Map – This map shows you where all the stories are from. Just click on the country to see it larger.

Tasks – This section gives some ideas for teachers that will help increase their students’ understanding of the stories.

I hope you enjoy these tales as much as I did. I think I’ve read them all at least twice now. I particularly enjoyed the tales from Scotland. Have fun!
