In this video segment from Between the Lions, the circus MC introduces the incredible, daring, and animated Trampolini Brothers performing the Good, Better, Best High-Wire Extravaganzaa. Arturo rides a unicycle across the high wire while he juggles three balls, which is good. Lorenzo rides a unicycle across the high wire while he holds two seals that are tossing a ball between them, which is better than Arturo. Felix rides a unicycle upside down with a clown juggling balls while standing on each of Felix's feet, which is the best of the three acts. The MC then reviews the brothers' moves with the corresponding comparative and superlative adjectives good, better, and best. Then the high wire breaks and the brothers fall on top of the MC. Featured vocabulary include the comparative and superlative adjectives good, better, and best. This video segment provides a resource for Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development, Phonics, Letter Knowledge Awareness, and Phonological Awareness.
