Use at least five GIFs to tell a myth, folklore, or legend. Add a few hints about what story you are depicting to help people guess. Be creative with the GIFs you find and try to find a lesser-known story to tell. It can also make fun of the story. Post the GIF story on your blog and let people guess what the story is.

The story begins . . .
Two fat children stumbled upon a sweet house in the middle of the woods.
The house belonged to an old woman.
She let the children eat all of the candy they wanted.
The old woman let them rest in her hot tub.
After the hot tub, the now even fatter children fell asleep at the woman’s house.
The old woman was actually a witch, and she cooked the children.
What is this story?
If you guessed a really simple, probably not 100% version of Hansel and Gretel, then you would be correct! Those children should have known that it is never a good idea to eat a witch’s house without facing any consequences.
I chose this story because I thought it would be shocking and funny when you just take its bare bones. The gifs do not reveal the story, except for the very last one, but I thought it was the perfect gif.
When first doing this assignment, I did not know which story to choose. I was originally going to do Goldilocks and the three bears, but I liked Hansel and Gretel better. I remembered that story a little more, so I just went with that one. The story is not very accurate, but you can still get the idea that it is about Hansel and Gretel AKA the two fat children.
