Take a look at the preview and thumbnails for photos of the story slider. It's such a neat way of demonstrating how chicken managed to solve all the characters' problems by trading the objects they wanted. Step-by-step instructions (with photos) are provided.
Please note: The picture book is not included with this unit. If you don’t have it in your collection, you can check it out from your local library.
