Students could write a short drama based on the clip. Students could watch the clip a few times before acting it out. Students could learn the phrases 'could you please help me' and 'I have a good idea'.

Students could discuss what happened in the clip. Why did the boy keep playing the drum? Is it right for the boy to keep playing the drum while others were sleeping? What happened to the old man? How is the problem solved at the end? How many people helped?

Note: This story is also available in English, with the title 'The Boy and the Drum' (animation).
