This is a great ppt for younger children. I work primarily with pre-k students and these are some of the concepts that we are trying to teach them. I love your outline and how interesting you made it for them.
I like that you made this adventurous and included the students in the ending. It was up to the students to get the characters home safely. Good repetition of vocab words. - Natalie Abdulkarim
