Summary:

The animals are having a party, and everyone contributed something...

This is a Scramble Storyboard: it's designed to be read several times, each time with subtle differences. The goal is to see if the structure or the intonation of an answer changes depending on what question it's answering.

For example, in English, your intonation changes depending on what is being questioned:

"Who brought the music?" "FISH brought the music."

"What did Fish bring?" "Fish brought the MUSIC."

Other languages keep the intonation the same but change the order of words. This storyboard is designed to help you figure out what happens in the language you're recording.
