A twist of rabbit and turtle story

This is a story about the Rabbit and the Turtle and their famous Race. I rewrote the story based on a video I saw on the Internet for my son’s school project which he never used…

———–

Narrator 1 : One day, Rabbit and Turtle decided to have a race to finally decide who is the better runner.

Rabbit and Turtle walks in from the left and starts to stretch themselves, getting ready for the run.

Narrator 2 : Once they have decided on the finishing point, they counted down and off they went!!!

Both Rabbit and Turtle runs on the spot but Rabbit ahead of Turtle.

Narrator 2 : Rabbit dashes ahead of Turtle and was leading wayyy ahead of the race. After a while, seeing how far he is ahead, Rabbit decides to take a rest before finishing the race.

Rabbit sits down and takes a nap.

Narrator 1 : Without realising, Rabbit fell asleep while Turtle slowly but surely overtook the sleeping Rabbit and won the race.

Turtle sneaks pass the sleeping Rabbit and reaches the finishing line, cheering away…

Narrator 2 : When Rabbit woke up, he realised that he lost the run and was very upset with himself

Rabbit wakes up and was very upset…

Narrator 2 : The lesson from this race is Slow and Steady is better than Fast and Inconsistent. Rabbit though about the race and decided to challenge Turtle to a race again.

Rabbit and Turtle walks in from the left again and starts to stretch themselves in one corner of the room, getting ready for the run.

Narrator 1 : This time, when the race started, Rabbit did not stop until he reaches ALL the way to the finishing line, completing the race wayy ahead of the Turtle

Rabbit and Turtle runs off, but Rabbit reaches the right side first and started cheering.

Narrator 1 : Turtle lost the race and it was his turn to be very upset. The lesson from this race is Slow and Steady is good but to be Fast and Steady is better.

Narrator 2 : Turtle decided to challenge Rabbit again, this time changing the road of the race. Rabbit agreed, thinking that he can beat Turtle as long as he is consistent.

Rabbit and Turtle walks in from the left again and starts to stretch themselves in one corner of the room, getting ready for the run.

Narrator 1 : Just like the last time, once the race began, Rabbit dashed off like a speeding bullet, leading all the way ahead of the race.

Rabbit dashes off but stops in the middle of the room

Narrator 1 : However, he soon reaches a river and was unable to cross it as he does not know how to swim. Soon Turtle caught up with Rabbit at the river and swam across the river to reach the finishing line at the other side.

Turtle reaches the middle of the room, swims across the river and wins, cheering at the other side.

Narrator 1 : The lesson from this race is Know your strength and choose the competition according to your strength.

Narrator 2 : By this time, Rabbit and Turtle were good friends and both felt that the last race could be done better. So they decided to run the last race again, this time as a team.

Rabbit and Turtle walks in from the left again and starts to stretch themselves in one corner of the room, getting ready for the run.

Narrator 2 : When the race started, Rabbit carried Turtle on his back and started running all the way to the river.

Rabbit holds Turtle’s hands and runs to the middle of the run, stopping at the river.

Narrator 2 : At the river, Rabbit hopped onto Turtle’s back and Turtle carried Rabbit across the river. Both reached the finishing line together, faster than either of them could have done it themselves.

Turtle now holds Rabbits hand and pull him across the river to the other side. Both cheering when they reached the finishing line.

Narrator 1 : The lesson from the last race is It is important to know your strength and to know your team’s strength. Together, a team can do so much more than any person alone.

THE END
