I'm trying to integrate biblical teachings in our unit on fairy tales. Anyone have any experience with this?

I'm curious, are you in a Christian school or public. That's the first thing.

I wouldn't. Fairy Tales are fantasy and Bible stories are not. (At least not to people who believe the Bible to be the word of God.) I wouldn't mix the two regardless of the school you teach in - you are guaranteed to upset people.

Christian. We are trying to incorporate a biblical worldview in our units. This just happens to be coming up.

When I taught TK in Christian school years ago, we often interwove Christian values, into stories we read where they fit the moral of the story. For instance, Rainbow fish is a classic tale of sharing sacrificially. We tweaked the story to say that The Octopus reminded rainbow fish about the little boy and the two loaves of fish and how he shared his meal and God blessed it. Rainbow fish thought about how God tells us to treat others the way we want to be treated. Ect... I suppose you could get into trouble with legalistic folks who don't want to mix the world with scripture. I find that many secular stories seem to be influenced by scriptural values and morals. I guess you'd have to know your parents to be sure.

Here is an article that has a positive view of fairy tales from Christianity Today
