Introduction

This is a chameleon named Joan:

    Joan the chameleon

Joan loves climbing and finding bugs to eat. She has a little brother named Sam who likes bugs too, but they don't spend much time together. (Chameleons are very independent.)

When Joan sticks her tongue out to catch something, her tongue travels straight, just like part of a line. Joan uses what she knows about lines to catch lots of flies. Maybe you can find a different use for lines and flies!

Parents and teachers should look at the note to adults.
