Encouraging Dialogue

For Students K-12

  • Look at the painting and share what you notice. What is going on in this painting?
  • Imagine a story to go along with this painting. Who are the main characters? If you were to give your story a title, what would it be called?
  • These animals seem like they are acting like humans. This is called anthropomorphism. Can you name any fairy tales or stories that have animals that act like humans? Search for an owl dressed as a soldier, a crawfish reading a book, and a goat sitting at the table.
