What do you see?
Share the video or book with the children.
Ask the children to divide into two groups. those who think they saw a duck and those who think they saw a rabbit. Which did most people see?
Using dough or clay challenge the children to combine two animals into a new creature.

Bring the creatures back to the inquiry circle and share the creatures. Can the children guess what the two combined animals are? Which do they see first?
