I used this in a Cinderella study for my second grade students. It is a version of the fairy tale written about the Algonquin Indians. Instead of a wicked step-mother, the mother is dead, but not replaced. The family is poor, and Rough-Face Girl does all the dirty work such as tend the fire causing her to have burned, scarred features and hair.
My girls were horrified by her appearance, but the boys finally found a Cinderella they could get into!
