Prepared by Robbie Felipe.
Because of the hen’s desire to be like the Eagle, she became selfish and betrayed the cock.
- Why do you think the Hen so badly wanted to grow wings like the Eagle’s?
- What do you think about the punishment that the Eagle gave to the Hen? Was the Eagle being too harsh? Did the Hen deserve her punishment?
Think about a time when you were betrayed by a friend or a classmate. Would you be able to forgive your friend for what he/she did to you? What would you like to tell them now?
Or perhaps you were in a situation where your friend/s felt betrayed because of something you did. How did that situation feel? What would you do to show your friends how sorry you are for what you did?
