Find information on at least one more tourist attraction anywhere in our country. Read about it. Paste your information on the back of this page.

Make sure that you know the contents well.

Turn to your partner and retell what you have read.

Listen to your partner retell what you have told him/her, to you.

Which one of you was most accurate in re-telling the information?

OR

Find a story/fable/folktale about something that can fly. Think wide: birds, ‘planes, space ships, hot air balloons – even rocket-propelled people – can fly. Make sure that you know what you have read, then turn and tell your partner the story. Listen to your partner telling the story (-ies) he has read.

Who is the Best ?

(an East African fable)

One day the animals were quarrelling about who was the best animal.

“I am,” roared the lion, “for I am the most feared. Everyone is terrified of me.”

“No, I am,” trumpeted the elephant, “because I am the biggest!”

“No, I am,” hissed the snake, “for I am the deadliest. No-one will survive my poison.”

“Am I not the one who flies the highest ?” cried the eagle.

This argument went on for a long time, each one claiming to be very important. The cheetah claimed that he was the fastest creature, the giraffe insisted that he was the tallest, the python stated that he was the longest, and the sheep was adamant that he was the most patient.

Finally they agreed to call Man and let him be the judge. Man came and said, “The best of all the animals is the cow because she is the most useful to me!”

The Bees and the Tortoise

(a fable from Mali)

The bees had made a new drum, and as bees love dancing, they danced and hummed for hours in celebration on that day. All the animals heard the noise coming from the hive and they came along, hoping to be invited to join in, but the bees kept their celebration all to themselves. The lion, the elephant, the leopard, the hartebeest, the buffalo, the antelope, the hog and even the tortoise were there.

After listening for a while, the animals grew so fond of the sound of the new drum that they decided to steal it. First the lion tried but he was stung by a hundred bees and had to run away. All the animals tried to steal the drum but none of them succeeded.

Then, at last, the tortoise offered to try. All the animals laughed heartily at this, but the tortoise went into the hive and told the bees that he was a master drummer. He played beautifully after the bees had given him permission to drum for a little while. Suddenly the drum disappeared! The clever tortoise had hidden it underneath his shell. He excused himself and walked away quietly. The bees were so angry that they tried to sting him, but to no avail – he was too well protected by his shell. That is why he had the confidence to try when everyone else had failed.
