Two Short Stories for Kids on Team Work
The Strory from the viilage of Chatupatti
Once upon a time, in the village of Chatupatii, live four friends – Their names were Shyam, Rahil, Arjun and Mohit. They each had their own strengths. Shyam was amazing with Animals, Rahil was very strong physically, Arjun was very good at maths and Mohit was very good with making new friends.
They were young men who worked on fields. They ploughed the field through the day and in the evening they returned home. One of these days, they chanced upon a huge box filled with diamonds and gold. All four of them wanted to take it for themselves.
They started fighting with each other for the first time in their life. Rahil being the strongest amongst them managed to snatch all the tressure and run away.
Meanwhile, a thief was observing this from a distance. The thief stole into Rahil’s house and took away the gold. Rahil woke up and realised that his gold was lost. He went straight to his friends. The first thing he did was applogize. Mohit was the first to realise they were wrong too and convinced the other two. Mohit made them realise they were also behaving in an equally bad way and Rahil got the tressure only cause he was strongest of them all. But, all of them had intended to keep the gold for themselves.
Together, they started looking for the thief. Shyam’s dog could track sents and so with the help of Shyam’s pet they were soon on the thief’s trail. After a while, they caught him and they were able to easily overpower him and get the tressure.
Arjun’s mathematics skill was put to good use to divide the tressure equally amongst all of them.
They realised how important it was to be a team and they stuck around with each other and usually shared and helped each other out.
It is important to discuss with kids how each one of us has different strengths and we should value our strengths and appreciate other peoples uniqueness. It is important to share, this is what would help in the long term.
You many also build a conversation with the kid on teamwork and how often a task needs different skills. Working together can help us complete the task, this way we leverage our unique skills.
The Story of how the Animals saved the Tree
In the middle of the forest there was a very huge tree. It was home to many birds and animals. Monkey, squirrels, bats, owl, even rabbits and rats lived under the tree. All the animals livied in harmony. The tree also provided shade to the animals that passed by.
One day, the animals saw some humans in the forest. Often, animals realised that humans in a forest is not a good sign.The humans were poachers who wanted to chop the tree down. “The is huge. The branches and the trunk can be used for furniture and wooden toys. The twigs and small branches could be used as fuel for cooking, the leaves are also so big, they also can be used for making organic plates, some craft work, compost and manure” said one of them seeing the tree.
The animals heard this and realised that they had to act immediately to save the tree.
The ants and the insects started marching towards the men and bit them. The rats started to run around the men distracting and irritating them. The monkeys attacked them vigorously as if trying to hurt them.
The birds hurled stones at them. The humans were completely shocked and were not able to retaliate, they decided to run away.
Thus together, the animals worked togethere to drive the common enemy away.
Sometimes, individually we might not be strong enough to fight against something big. If we have a strong united team, we can fight with and win against any hurdle.
