The Fox and the Grapes

1 min read

The moral of The Fox and the Grapes is that sometimes we want things that we cannot have, and we have to be okay with that. 


Some questions that I would ask students about this fable are:

1. How did the fox handle not being able to reach the grapes?

2. Do you think the grapes were really sour?

3. Give me an example of a time when you wanted something but could not have it. How did you react to this situation?

4. How could have the fox have reacted to this situation differently?
