This story is for a group of four.  Do a warm-up teaching "sounds."   This story can be used to stress the importance of sound in a drama--kids will enjoy personifying the creatures of the jungle.  Some groups can make sounds with voices only, some with musical instruments only, some with found objects only.    We have also created a full lesson from this story in our Fourth Grade Curriculum.
