Unit 14                                       Story: The Hare and the Tortoise

Lesson I

 

A. Listen and read.

One day, a hare was walking in the forest when he saw a tortoise. The hare 

was the fastest animal in the forest. The tortoise was the slowest animal in the 

forest. The hare called out to the tortoise, "Hurry up! You are so slow! Can't you 

walk faster? Can't you run?"

 

 

The tortoise felt angry and said to the hare, "Why don't we have a race? Maybe 

I can win!"

Lesson 2

The hare ran quickly and in a few minutes the hare was out of sight. The hare said to

himself, "The tortoise is very far behind. I can see the finish line. I have time for a nap!" 

Soon the hare was asleep under a tree next to the path.

The tortoise walked steadily, on and on. He didn't stop. Soon, he passed the sleeping hare.

The hare slept for an hour. When he finally woke up, he looked at the finish line. He couldn't 

believe his eyes! Tortoise was almost at the finish line! The hare ran as fast as he could, but 

it was too late. The tortoise crossed the finish line and won the competition! The hare was furious!

The tortoise looked back at the hare and smiled. Then he said, "Slow but steady wins the race!"
