POST There are many stories about animals in India. This is a traditional story about how the tiger got its stripes. Check it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy! 

Lesson 3 8



  Listen to and read the story.

How the tiger got its stripes Why is the tiger curious?   What is the man’s trick? 1

A long time ago, in the days when animals can speak, tigers are white or brown but they haven’t got stripes. Then one day something happens to change this forever.


A tiger walks to the edge of the forest. A man is eating his lunch by a rice field. An enormous buffalo is eating grass nearby. The tiger creeps up to the buffalo. The man is more intelligent than I am.

Don’t be scared. I’m not hungry. I’m curious. You’re bigger and stronger than the man. Why do you work for him?

What is intelligence? And where does the man get it from? 3

I don’t know. Why don’t you ask him?


The tiger leaps over to the man. The man stands up. He’s shaking with fear.

The man is worried. He thinks quickly.

Intelligence is very precious. I don’t want to share it with you.

What is intelligence? Where do you get it from? Please can you share it with me.

Are you sure? I’m feeling hungry …

My intelligence is at home. Wait here and I can get it. Don’t come with me because people in my village are scared of tigers. I don’t want to leave my buffalo with a hungry tiger. Please can I tie you to this banana tree?

Alright. But make sure you come back. Or tomorrow I may be hungrier …

9   Read and say True or False. Correct the false sentences.


The man is more intelligent than the buffalo. The man ties the tiger to an apple tree. The man and his son bring a lot of wood. The tiger cools his fur in the river. The black stripes are from the fire.

Ti g

The man is stronger than the buffalo.

Track Val r u e Think about it!


1 2 3 4 5 6

Is it important to be kind to animals? In what ways are you kind to animals?



The tiger wants the man’s intelligence so much that he agrees. The man ties the tiger to the banana tree with thick rope.

Later, the man returns with his son and a lot of dry straw.


Look. I keep my promises. Here is my intelligence.

Ha, ha. I’m safe now.

Really? Is this intelligence?

Ha, ha. With the man’s intelligence I can rule the jungle.

Yes, of course it is!


The man and his son lay the straw around the tiger and set it on fire. The tiger breaks the rope and leaps away.


The tiger races to the river. He swims in the water and cools his fur. Ah, that’s better. But look at my fur! I’ve got orange stripes from the fire and black stripes from the rope.

Roooaarrr! This is cruelty, not intelligence!


And this is the story of how the tiger got its stripes. It’s also the reason why tigers never trust people.

Do you know…?

10   Ask and say.


A tiger’s stripes are unique – like a person’s finger prints! Stripes also help tigers to hide in forests.

The Emperor of India and his queen have a long and happy marriage.

CLIL Hi there! In India, animals such as rhinos, tigers and POST snow leopards are in danger. There are thousands of other endangered animals in countries all over the world. Here’s a web page which explains the reasons and gives facts about some endangered animals. I hope you find it interesting.

Natural science

Lesson 8 25



  Read and listen.

Endangered Red animals alert!



An endangered animal is an animal in danger of extinction. There are four main reasons why animals are endangered:

Loss of habitat Animals lose their homes when people cut down forests to build farms or roads. They also lose their source of food and water.

Pollution The earth, rivers and seas are polluted by chemicals and rubbish. Animals catch diseases and die. 4

Hunting and poaching People hunt and poach wild animals for their skins, horns or tusks, or to sell them as exotic pets.

Mountain gorillas live in Africa. There are about 800 in the world today. Gorillas are endangered because of loss of habitat, poaching and hunting baby gorillas to sell as exotic pets.

Giant pandas live in China. There are about 2,000 in the world today. Giant pandas are endangered because of loss of habitat and pollution.

Polar bears live in the Arctic. There are about 20,000 in the world today. Polar bears are endangered because of global warming and pollution.

Indian rhinos live in Asia. There are about 3,000 in the world today. Indian rhinos are endangered because of hunting and poaching for their valuable horns.

Tigers live in Asia. There are about 4,000 in the world today. Tigers are endangered because of loss of habitat, global warming, poaching and hunting for their skins.

Snow leopards live in Asia. There are about 5,000 in the world today. Snow leopards are endangered because of loss of habitat, hunting and poaching for their skins.

26   Read and answer. Which animals are endangered because of …

1 … loss of habitat? 2 … global warming?

3 … pollution? 4 … hunting and poaching?

27   Play a game: Question challenge. Where do polar bears live? In the Arctic. How many tigers are there in the world today? About four thousand. Why are Indian rhinos endangered? …



Global warming The earth is getting hotter. It is harder for animals to find the food and water that they need.

POST Look at my project about the red squirrel. Why are red squirrels endangered? How many are there in the UK today?

An endangered animal My favourite endangered animal is the red squirrel. Red squirrels live in the trees in woods and parks. They are red or brown and have got white fur on their chests. They eat nuts and seeds. Red squirrels are shy and live on their own. Red squirrels are in danger because of loss of habitat, disease and road traffic. They are also in danger from grey squirrels. Red squirrels are smaller than grey squirrels but they have got longer ears and tails. Grey squirrels are heavier and stronger than red squirrels. Grey squirrels are hungrier and eat red squirrels’ food. Grey squirrels also live longer than red squirrels. There are about 3 million grey squirrels in the UK today but there are only about 140,000 red squirrels. By Rosa.

When an adjective has: – 1 syllable, we add –er e.g. tall, taller. – 1 vowel and 1 consonant at the end, we double the letter e.g. big, bigger – 2 syllables ending in ‘y’, we change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ e.g. heavy, heavier – 3 or more syllables, we use ‘more’ e.g. intelligent, more intelligent 1
