Dancing Like a Chicken
By Mary L. Bushong
1 Raymond and Rachel liked dance class. Well, most of the time they liked it. Now they were not so sure. Mrs. Lasker had just shown them a program about Native American dances. Many times Native Americans had based their dances on how animals moved. Now Mrs. Lasker wanted them to do the same thing.
2 "Since you do not get to see how wild animals move, watch how your pets do things," she said. "Make up a dance based on them."
3 When Mom came to pick them up after class, she asked how it went.
4 "It was fun part of the time," said Raymond, "but Mrs. Lasker wants us to make up our own dance, too."
5 "We're supposed to make our dance be like an animal," said Rachel, shaking her head.
6 "That sounds like fun," said Mom.
7 "I guess," said Raymond.
8 "But cats and dogs don't dance," said Rachel. "We don't have any other pets."
9 "How about the chickens?" asked Mom. "They do some pretty funny things. Why not watch some of the things they do?"
