Visits For Cock-A-Doodle Moooo!

A reading of the book is supplemented with a discussion using flashcard images featuring wild and wonderful animal combinations found in myths and legends from around the world. A question and answer segment is followed by an opportunity for the children to create an animal combination of their own. With the guidance of a worksheet featuring drawings of a diverse group of real animals students are asked to draw their own animal combination, put it in a setting, and give it a made-up name. At the conclusion of the visit, the children will have an opportunity to share their wondrous animal creation with the group.
