Activity 3

Produce a sheet of about 15 words taken from the film. Write them down the centre of a page with space for comments and notes. Photocopy this page and give each student a copy. Discuss meanings and possible context for these words. Make the students watch the film. They should not write anything at this stage. Ask students to work in pairs. They should now look at their copy and try to recall the context for the words on their copy. Ask them to write down next to the words the context of the word as they remember it. Finally the students pool their information. The teacher together with the class may want to produce a written record of the contextualised words on the board.

Working with strong and weak verbs.

To the teacher :The story of the Jungle Book contains very much action and excitement and therefore a natural focus is to work with verbs.

To the pupils: Look at the following list of verbs taken from the story and decide which ones are strong verbs. Give the forms of the present-past and perfect tenses

Example : heard is a strong verb because it does not take –ed as an ending in the past and perfect tenses.

5.4 Cross-curricular activities
To the teacher

Make a scrapbook or a poster


The Jungle Book such as it was originally written by Rudyard Kipling has the Indian jungle as the setting of the story. The various animals that Mowgli encounters in the story are all animals found in the Indian jungle.

Make use of the library and provide the pupils with books on exotic animals like the tiger, panther, wolf, python, and monkeys and make them find as much information as they can about a chosen animal. “Hele verdens dyreliv, orientalsk region” Libri Arte 1996, is informative and precise. Encourage the pupils and help them translate the information into English. Ask them to make a scrapbook containing both pictures and text about these animals. Alternatively the class can make a joint poster on the Indian jungle. Ask them to find out if these animals are threatened species.



Encourage the pupils to look for newspaper articles about the animals. Encourage them to find information on the Internet.
Issues for discussion.

Should man-eating animals like the tiger be protected?


Do you think we should have wild wolves and bears in Norway?
Make a panel discussion about these issues in class in Norwegian or if possible in English.

The British Empire

Talk about the British Empire and look at maps with the class to find out how big the empire was at its height.
