Folktales vs. Legends

  • Folk tales are stories told by word of mouth. They are passed down from generation to generation with no original author.
  • Examples: The Gingerbread Man and Chicken Little.
  • Legends are stories which are told as if they were a historical event. These stories are usually embellished but are accurate in describing the time period and people. Legends are passed down usually in writing rather than orally.
  • Examples: Stories of Robin Hood and King Arthur.

Which category do you think Johnny Appleseed falls into?

slide4

Johnny Appleseed traveled barefoot, always, and was welcome wherever he went. The Indians liked him a lot and respected him for his courage.

When the War of 1812 began, many of the Indians joined the British in their fight against the settlers. They attacked up and down the Ohio Territory but they never bothered Johnny Appleseed.

He took this opportunity to warn the settlers of the dangers. Johnny heard of a siege the Indians had on Mansfield, OH and he ran 26 miles through the forest to Mt. Vernon to get help for the settlers. Help came within a day and they were all saved thanks to Johnny Appleseed’s bravery.
