I want to share with you an idea to explain the story of Gemma Merino: The crocodile who didn’t like water. This story and I spoke a while ago.

In the nursery they showed the kids how the shell of an egg is broken and an animal born. It was very interesting for them, they usually see eggs as a food in which the food is made.

The protagonists of this story are oviparous reptiles: crocodiles and a dragon. So these eggs are ideal.

We could distribute the session as follows:

  1. PRESENTATION

We can make a little puppet with cardboard and a stick, simple but striking.

2. STORY TIME

Explanation of the story. The dimensions of the book are 27.5 x 22 cm, children can see no problem if they are placed in a semicircle.

3. Explanation of reptiles

We can explain a lot about reptiles, specifically the crocodile that appears in the story and origin: egg, so they are oviparous.

A curiosity!

Some reptiles females protect the eggs inside them and give birth to their young. They are a mixture of oviparous and viviparous, are ovoviviparous.

But we are interested crocodiles and dragons. We could make a presentation to project them or a cardboard with information and photographs. Both are oviparous.

It would be nice to explain that there is a race of dragons, the Komodo dragon, which is not only a mythological creature. Kids will love it!

4. Put the egg in the water and closing.

The most fun! Place among all the egg in water, in a transparent container.

And you can see how the shell, days after breaks.

THE MOST IMPORTANT

I think it’s a book that has many things to work , do not want to reveal the magic of history but:

– Overcoming fears

– Know yourself

– Self-confidence

– Acceptance of the characteristics and other
