The situations depicted in this book are tough to explain but SOMEBODY HAS TO DO IT. Challenge your students to create original stories as they explain unusual, impossible situations shown in this reproducible workbook. The activities help students develop expressive language skills as they tell or write wacky stories.

Each activity includes a humorous picture and a description of the situation shown in the picture. The student is required to give an explanation for the situation depicted.

In one of the stories, a woman is shown sleeping between two pieces of bread. The story says:

Maria fell asleep when she was working in a bakery. The pieces of bread made a very comfortable bed. Explan where this bed of bread came from, as you tell a funny story about this "big bread" picture.
