- Ask children to assume the role of one of the animals and to act out the dialogue. Demonstrate yourself first.
Child 1: (in the role of the rabbit) You’re so ugly. Go away!
Child 2: (in the role of the dog) Don’t come back, leave today.
Before going into class

- Hand out a photocopy to each child. Explain the activity. Allow children some time to complete the task. Check children’s answers.
Ending the lesson
- Mime an animal from the story, making the movements and noises of that animal. Invite children to guess which animal you are. Invite the first child to guess correctly to come to the front of the class and mime a different animal for the others to guess. Repeat as many times as you feel is necessary.
