Turtle is hungry so he follows the smell of food until it takes him to the spider Anansi's house. She reluctantly allows him in to share her food but tricks him and he leaves hungry. Despite this, he invites Anansi to dinner if she ever feels hungry. One day she turns up - but will she be fed?

Could be used as a listening activity when students need to note down information they hear, such as what Turtle found first and what Anansi added in her cooking. It could also be a visual stimulus for students to practise the pattern of yinwei..suoyi (because).
