The activity encourages children to empathise with the story's protagonist, an old man who, engulfed in sadness after a bird he cherished flies away, makes a wish under the moonlight. Students are prompted to ponder what the man might have wished for and the reasons behind his wish. This exercise not only stimulates their imagination but also enhances their ability to articulate thoughts and emotions, creating a deeper connection with the narrative.

The story continues with a magical turn as the old man's wish begins to manifest. The learning objective shifts to using continuous verbs ending in '-ing'. In this part of the journey, students witness the transformation of the man's surroundings as seeds dropped by birds flourish into a lush forest teeming with life.

They are asked to identify creatures that are creeping and to match sentence beginnings to the appropriate animals, enhancing their observational and descriptive skills. This exercise not only enriches their vocabulary but also encourages them to engage actively with the text, fostering a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world.
