Big strong King of animals weak safe small
You are right. Now listen the story. “ The lion and the mouse”.
One day a lion was sleeping in a forest. A mouse accidentally ran across the lion,s face and woke him up. The lion was very angry. He caught the mouse in his big paws and roared at him. “You woke me up!” he roared. “I should eat you!” “Oh please”, the mouse said, “do not eat me! If you let me go free,I promise that I will help you someday”. The King of Beasts began to laugh loudly. “How could such a small mouse help me?” the lion asked.”You are so weak and I am so strong!” The lion thought the idea was so funny that he let the mouse go free. A few days later, the lion accidentally walked into a net set by some hunters. Even though he was very strong, he could not get free. He was so upset that he began to roar loudly. “Help me! Someone Help me! ” he roared. The mouse heard the lion,s roar and ran to the place where the lion was caught. The mouse chewed through the net and soon the lion was free. “Thank you,” said the grateful lion. “I now know that in time of trouble, the weak can help the strong.”
After listening: Answer the following questions about the story.
Where did the lion live?
Who woke the lion up? What did the lion want to do to the mouse? What did the mouse promise the lion? Why did the lion let the mouse go free?
What problem did the lion have? How did the mouse help the lion? What did the lion learn?
