El pollito pío
- Very nicely designed video goes through the sounds that different farm animals make. Video is repetitive, shows text for each sound, does end with the little chick getting flattened by a tractor on the farm. The ending would be funny for upper elementary students, but might be upsetting to preschool/lower elementary students.
