Today, you will have some final activities based on the book, 'The Midnight' Fox by Betsy Byars.
Re-read the text again that we have been using this week. This is the conversation between Tom and his best friend, Petie. In this opening part of the story, Tom is about to leave for the summer holiday to stay on his Aunt and Uncle's farm.
Tom and Petie were looking forward to spending the summer holidays together, and now discover they are about to spend them apart.
As the boys observe the ant, Tom imagines things from the insect’s perspective, but gives it the ability to experience and voice human emotions.
Find an area in your home or garden, if you have one, and imagine you are a tiny creature — an ant, spider, or fly — navigating the enormous obstacles a human home includes: it could be the bathroom, with wide areas of glistening white porcelain, the living room with a deep, impenetrable forest of carpet, or the duvet in your bedroom, a soft undulating landscape spreading as far as the eye can see.
Write about your travels from this different perspective, for someone else to read. You may choose to do this in drawing and writing.
