In the story ‘Fly, Eagle, Fly’, a foolish farmer finds an baby eagle while searching for the calf he has lost. He takes the baby eagle back to his village and starts treating it like one of his chickens. His friend argues that he should set the eagle free and allow it to follow its destiny in the sky.
The children developed the conversation between the farmer and his friend by adopting the role of each one. This helped them to consider what each character might feel, say and do and write a piece of dialogue based upon the two friends’ argument.
