Activitat d’anglès amb la cançó ‘The Fox’

Aquí teniu una activitat sobre els animals i els sons que fan. Està basada en un anunci d’Hora de aventuras, que encanta als nens—i a molts adults. L’anunci és una paròdia d’una cançó d’un duet còmic noruec.

The fox (15/30 min)

a) Try to fill in the blanks before listening to the song. Then, listen to it and complete the task. Finally, check your answers watching the video.

The fox – Ylvis

Dog goes woof
Cat goes meow
Bird goes tweet
and mouse goes squeak
Cow goes moo
Frog goes croak
and the elephant goes toot
Ducks say quack
and fish go blub
and the seal goes ow ow ow
But there’s one sound
That no one knows
What does the fox say?

Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
What the fox say?
Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
What the fox say?
Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
What the fox say?
Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!
What the fox say?

Believe it or not, there's a book based on the song

Per increïble que sembli, hi ha un llibre basat en la cançó

Big blue eyes
Pointy nose
Chasing mice
and digging holes
Tiny paws
Up the hill
Suddenly you’re standing still
Your fur is red
So beautiful
Like an angel in disguise
But if you meet
a friendly horse
Will you communicate by
mo-o-o-o-orse?
How will you speak to that
ho-o-o-o-orse?
What does the fox say?

Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow!
What the fox say?
Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!
What the fox say?
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
What the fox say?
A-oo-oo-oo-ooo!
What does the fox say?

The secret of the fox
Ancient mystery
Somewhere deep in the woods
I know you’re hiding
What is your sound?
Will we ever know?
Will always be a mystery
What do you say?
You’re my guardian angel
Hiding in the woods
What is your sound?
Will we ever know?
I want to…
I want to…
I want to know!


b) Match these words from the song with their definitions.

Definitions from Oxford Dictionaries
  1. pointy
  2. tiny
  3. fur
  4. disguise
  5. deep
  1. a means of altering one’s appearance
  2. extending far down from the top or surface
  3. having a pointed tip or end
  4. the short, fine, soft hair of certain animals
  5. very small

Apunts per al professor

a) Delete the underlined words in your students’ copy. For absolute beginners you may want to stick to the first column and forget about the second. That part corresponds to the Adventure Time clip. If your student can take it, the full song is in the original clip. You might also want to point out that, actually, elephants trumpet and seals bark; it is in the Nordic countries that elephants go toot.

b) Exercise b only makes sense if the full song is played since the words belong to the second column. Answers are as follows: 1-c, 2-e, 3-d, 4-a, 5-b.
