The Selfish Little Red Hen

Overview

In this lesson pupils will read and discuss the tale of the Selfish Little Red Hen who does not offer her friend any help as she prepares for a party. Following the story, pupils will think about the people who help them and what help they can offer in return. The session concludes with an art activity in which the class creates ‘helping hand hens’ to remember the message of the story.
