Watch these two episodes with Anna and Jack. As you’re watching, try to notice what the big – most important – idea is in each video. Are these ideas very different from each other? Or are they similar?
What are the big ideas in each of these videos? [Anna learned about riding a horse and had her first ride. Jack loves to do roping, but he’d better pay attention to his list.]
Stories – like the ones in the TMR videos – have big ideas and then smaller details that support the big idea. The small details help you understand the big idea.
Extend learning with Saddle Stories, a game that allows players to build creative stories about horses.
