Chanticleer and the Fox

by maddielou Email

1. Have you heard the old saying, "There are two sides to every story"? What does that saying mean? Yes I have heard that saying. The saying means that two people in the same situation have different sides to the story.
2. Imagine that Chanticleer and Reynard are both looking back at the events that just happened between them. What might Chanticleer say if he were telling his version of the story of what happened? Chanticleer might say that he was sitting around and Reynard snuck up on him and told him to close his eyes and sing and he tricked him and caught him.
3. What would Reynard say? How would his prospective be different from Chanticleer's? I think that Reynard would say that he wanted to hear Chanticleer sing and then wanted to see how important he is to the farm. His prospective would be different from Chanticleer's because Reynard would be trying to prove that he is right and it is not his fault.

Florida

The first inhabitants of Florida were Paleo Indians and the Vero Man. People in FLorida sometimes found mounds of seashells because during hurricanes stuff from the sea washed into the streets and on the shores. The Spanish got Florida earlier because they fought the French and won. After settler attacks on Indians towns, Seminole Indians based in East Florida began raiding Georgia settlements, purportedly at at the behest of the Spanish. The United States Army led increasingly frequent incursions into Spanish territory, including the 1817-1818 campaign against the Seminole Indians by Andrew Jackson that became known as the First Seminole War. Following the war, the United States effectively controlled East Florida. Spain ceded Florida to the United States in exchange for the American renunciation of any claims on Texas and $5 million.
