In this video segment from Between the Lions, the circus MC introduces the incredible, daring, and animated Trampolini Brothers performing the Noisy Balancing Ballyhoo. One brother holds a squawking chicken and a monkey that crashes cymbals, which is noisy. The next brother holds a trumpeting elephant with a roaring lion, squawking chicken, and cymbal-crashing monkey on top. That's even noisier. The last brother holds a trumpeting elephant with a roaring lion, squawking chicken, cymbal-crashing monkey, barking seal, two party-favor-blowing clowns, and the MC on top. This is the noisiest of all. The MC reviews the comparative adjectives noisy, noisier, and noisiest as all three brothers are shown with their noise makers. Then the pile of animals and circus performers fall down. Featured vocabulary include the comparative and superlative adjectives noisy, noisier, and noisiest. This video segment provides a resource for Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development, Phonics, Letter Knowledge Awareness, and Phonological Awareness.
