This unit is based on the story of loneliness and friendship – ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. The children begin by studying the film based on the book and the two main characters – the boy and the penguin. They then go on to compare the book and film. They explore how changing the penguin character for a different animal would change the setting. Finally, using the structure of the original story, they write their own Lost and Found stories.
If you are not familiar with the book you may want to see a video flick-through;
