The Story of Ferdinand

In this Thoughtful Book, students first listen to The Story of Ferdinand, in which five men misinterpret the actions of Ferdinand the bull and select him as an ideal candidate to take part in the bullfights of Madrid. Students examine the story, identify the mistakes made by the five men, and provide advice to help them avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Finally, students brainstorm ways to avoid jumping to conclusions in real-life situations.
