Student Request: ‘Word Jungle’: Vocabulary Game

We had the game ‘Word Jungle’

embedded on this page,

but it was just TOO noisy.

Every time anyone opened our page,

they heard jungle drums

and monkeys chattering

and the neighbours were starting to complain 😉

Click on this link to go to Word Jungle

and have fun 🙂

playing with a cardboard box.

Afterwards we talked about

how many ways the hero of this story used the box.

We used clues in the story to guess in what country

this film was made.

 

We also touched on the theme of loss

and how happy memories can help us

when we remember people

and pets that we have lost.
