In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Wild animals build their own homes that are right for them. The story we are about to share is a Native American legend. It explains why each kind of animal must have its own kind of home.
Read aloud or tell in your own words the story, "Lizard's Song."
After the story, ask participants:
Then invite children to name their favorite wild animal and describe and/or name the animal's home. You may ask why they think the animals they name live in the kinds of homes they do.
Tell the story again, this time leading the children in singing the song with some of the new animal names and homes substituted for "lizard/rock" and "bear/den."
