Have you heard the word ‘pair’ before? It means when there are two of something. An example would be a pair of shoes. Can you think of any other pairs? Draw pictures of things that you can think of and have a go at labelling them.
Make a troll proof bridge!
Another practical activity today! Can you make a better bridge for the trolls to cross the river? How can you make it safe for the goats so that the troll can not get to them and they can cross safely to the field!
You can use anything you have at home, including any construction equipment like duplo, lego wooden blocks etc. How will it stop the troll from getting to the goats?
Look at the picture of the different bridges from around the world. What do you think your bridge will look like?
Additional activity – Make the stick puppets so that you can act out the story.
