Pourquoi Tales - Needham Grade 3
Mrs. Jepsen's Class
Pourquoi means "Why?" in French. Pourquoi stories have been around as folktales for many years dating back to our Native Americans. Mrs. Jepsen's third grade class worked hard to create their own, original Pourquoi tales. Each story was written by a group of students and answers the wonderings of "why" or "how" questions about animals.
We hope you enjoy reading our tales as much as we have enjoyed creating them.
