Set the Stage Use the following to get the students ready to read: Discuss the cover and title. Allow students to predict what they think the book will be about. The story takes place six thousand years ago in what is now modern day Northern Europe. Locate and discuss that area on a world map.
Find out what students know about the time period, the Mesolithic era, where the story takes place. Discuss how the area and the people of that time might be different today. Review After reading the book, discuss the following: Define the terms clans and hunter-gather Why did Torak and his father live alone rather than with the clan?
Discuss how Torak and wolf were alike and how they were different. How would the prophecy be remembered if there was no written language at the time? Why were all the clans named after animals?
The result was that he shot up straight into the air for four or five feet, landing almost where he left ground. He looked up into Father Wolf's face, and laughed. Bring it here. How naked, and--how bold! The baby was pushing his way between the cubs to get close to the warm hide.
He is taking his meal with the others. And so this is a man's cub. Now, was there ever a wolf that could boast of a man's cub among her children?
But see, he looks up and is not afraid. Tabaqui, behind him, was squeaking: "My lord, my lord, it went in here! A man's cub went this way," said Shere Khan. Give it to me. But Father Wolf knew that the mouth of the cave was too narrow for a tiger to come in by. Even where he was, Shere Khan's shoulders and forepaws were cramped for want of room, as a man's would be if he tried to fight in a barrel.
The man's cub is ours--to kill if we choose. What talk is this of choosing?
By the bull that I killed, am I to stand nosing into your dog's den for my fair dues? It is I, Shere Khan, who speak!
Mother Wolf shook herself clear of the cubs and sprang forward, her eyes, like two green moons in the darkness, facing the blazing eyes of Shere Khan. The man's cub is mine, Lungri--mine to me! He shall not be killed. He shall live to run with the Pack and to hunt with the Pack; and in the end, look you, hunter of little naked cubs--frog-eater-- fish-killer--he shall hunt thee!
Now get hence, or by the Sambhur that I killed I eat no starved cattle , back thou goest to thy mother, burned beast of the jungle, lamer than ever thou camest into the world! He had almost forgotten the days when he won Mother Wolf in fair fight from five other wolves, when she ran in the Pack and was not called The Demon for compliment's sake.
Shere Khan might have faced Father Wolf, but he could not stand up against Mother Wolf, for he knew that where he was she had all the advantage of the ground, and would fight to the death.
So he backed out of the cave mouth growling, and when he was clear he shouted: "Each dog barks in his own yard! We will see what the Pack will say to this fostering of man-cubs.
The cub is mine, and to my teeth he will come in the end, O bush-tailed thieves! The cub must be shown to the Pack.
Wilt thou still keep him, Mother? Look, he has pushed one of my babes to one side already. And that lame butcher would have killed him and would have run off to the Waingunga while the villagers here hunted through all our lairs in revenge! Keep him? Assuredly I will keep him. Lie still, little frog. O thou Mowgli --for Mowgli the Frog I will call thee--the time will come when thou wilt hunt Shere Khan as he has hunted thee.
The Law of the Jungle lays down very clearly that any wolf may, when he marries, withdraw from the Pack he belongs to. But as soon as his cubs are old enough to stand on their feet he must bring them to the Pack Council, which is generally held once a month at full moon, in order that the other wolves may identify them. After that inspection the cubs are free to run where they please, and until they have killed their first buck no excuse is accepted if a grown wolf of the Pack kills one of them.
The punishment is death where the murderer can be found; and if you think for a minute you will see that this must be so. Father Wolf waited till his cubs could run a little, and then on the night of the Pack Meeting took them and Mowgli and Mother Wolf to the Council Rock--a hilltop covered with stones and boulders where a hundred wolves could hide. Akela, the great gray Lone Wolf, who led all the Pack by strength and cunning, lay out at full length on his rock, and below him sat forty or more wolves of every size and color, from badger-colored veterans who could handle a buck alone to young black three-year-olds who thought they could.
The Lone Wolf had led them for a year now. He had fallen twice into a wolf trap in his youth, and once he had been beaten and left for dead; so he knew the manners and customs of men.
There was very little talking at the Rock. The cubs tumbled over each other in the center of the circle where their mothers and fathers sat, and now and again a senior wolf would go quietly up to a cub, look at him carefully, and return to his place on noiseless feet.
Sometimes a mother would push her cub far out into the moonlight to be sure that he had not been overlooked. Akela from his rock would cry: "Ye know the Law--ye know the Law. Look well, O Wolves!
Akela never raised his head from his paws, but went on with the monotonous cry: "Look well! Give him to me. What have the Free People to do with a man's cub? All he said was: "Look well, O Wolves!
What have the Free People to do with the orders of any save the Free People? Look well! Then the only other creature who is allowed at the Pack Council--Baloo, the sleepy brown bear who teaches the wolf cubs the Law of the Jungle: old Baloo, who can come and go where he pleases because he eats only nuts and roots and honey--rose upon his hind quarters and grunted.
There is no harm in a man's cub. I have no gift of words, but I speak the truth. Let him run with the Pack, and be entered with the others. I myself will teach him. Who speaks besides Baloo? It was Bagheera the Black Panther, inky black all over, but with the panther markings showing up in certain lights like the pattern of watered silk. Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody cared to cross his path; for he was as cunning as Tabaqui, as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant.
But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than down.
And the Law does not say who may or may not pay that price. Am I right? The cub can be bought for a price. It is the Law. Besides, he may make better sport for you when he is grown. Baloo has spoken in his behalf. Now to Baloo's word I will add one bull, and a fat one, newly killed, not half a mile from here, if ye will accept the man's cub according to the Law.
Is it difficult? He will die in the winter rains. He will scorch in the sun.
What harm can a naked frog do us? Let him run with the Pack. Where is the bull, Bagheera? Let him be accepted. At last they all went down the hill for the dead bull, and only Akela, Bagheera, Baloo, and Mowgli's own wolves were left.
Shere Khan roared still in the night, for he was very angry that Mowgli had not been handed over to him. He may be a help in time. Akela said nothing.
He was thinking of the time that comes to every leader of every pack when his strength goes from him and he gets feebler and feebler, till at last he is killed by the wolves and a new leader comes up--to be killed in his turn.
Now you must be content to skip ten or eleven whole years, and only guess at all the wonderful life that Mowgli led among the wolves, because if it were written out it would fill ever so many books. He grew up with the cubs, though they, of course, were grown wolves almost before he was a child. And Father Wolf taught him his business, and the meaning of things in the jungle, till every rustle in the grass, every breath of the warm night air, every note of the owls above his head, every scratch of a bat's claws as it roosted for a while in a tree, and every splash of every little fish jumping in a pool meant just as much to him as the work of his office means to a business man.
When he was not learning he sat out in the sun and slept, and ate and went to sleep again. Play and work are indistinguishable. Learn More Grade 3 - 4 Children begin to separate their imaginary world from the world of reality. One is for play, one is for learning. They value both and transition easily from one to another. Reading is opening big doors to the larger world outside their home and classroom. Nature is their natural home.
