Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. There are some important life lessons to be found in the story. When your mother sends you to the market do what she tells you. Jack had a simple task to do, take his cow to the market and sell it to get some money to buy his family food. He got taken in by a swift talking bean salesman. Moral to the story, listen to your mother when she tells you to do something. Of course the story kind of works out for Jack. The beans get thrown out the window. In the night while they sleep a great beanstalk rises up into the sky. In the morning Jack wakes up and climbs the beanstalk This brings me to my next life lesson. Do not let your eyes become bigger then your wallet. Jack lays his eyes on the giant's possessions the harp, the gold coins and the hen which lays the golden eggs and he desires them. This simple act leads Jack down the wrong path which becomes my next life lesson. What's your is yours what's theirs you do not touch without permission. When all is said and done Jack stole the harp, the gold coins and the golden hen, items which did not belong to him. He then climbed down the bean stalk, chopped the bean stalk down and then let the giant fall to his doom. Of course Jack and his mom lived happily ever after. The giant well can we truthfully say he got what he deserved? He was going to eat poor Jack, but wasn't the giant just protecting his possessions? Which leads me to my next life lesson. If you know it's wrong then it's wrong no matter how much you justify what you're doing.. Jack saw a way to end his family's plight but it was not the most honorable one. He could have held his head up high, admitted his mistake and then sought out some kind of work to help support his mother and himself.
