In this video segment from Between the Lions, the circus MC introduces the incredible, daring, and animated Trampolini Brothers before they perform the Brave Human Canonball Hoopla. Arturo gets shot out of a canon through a small hoop and onto a small trampoline, proving that he is brave. Lorenzo gets shot out of a canon and flies between two smashing blocks, proving that he is braver than Arturo. Felix then gets shot out of a canon, flies between the smashing blocks, and above man-eating plants, thus proving that he is the bravest. The MC of the circus reviews the comparative and superlative adjectives brave, braver, and bravest, and then he gets chased by one of the man-eating plants. Featured vocabulary include the comparative and superlative adjectives brave, braver, and bravest. This video segment provides a resource for Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development, Phonics, Letter Knowledge Awareness, and Phonological Awareness.
