Tortoise, Hare and Rat
Transcript of Tortoise, Hare and Rat
Core 2 Tortoise, Hare, and Rat Tortoise, Hare, and Rat Narrator: The Tortoise and the Hare were having a their long awaited rematch.
Hare: Ha, ha!!! I'm going to beat you this time!
Tortoise: Slow and steady wins the race.
Rat: Can I race tooooooo??? Pleeeeeeease?
Narrator: The tortoise and the hare were so annoyed by Rat's whining they decided to let him race with them. But, there was a catch. Tortoise, Hare and Rat (cont.) Hare: Let's tell him that the starting line is the finish line!
That way we can race without being disturbed.
Tortoise: Awesome idea! Let's do it!
Narrator: The hare and the tortoise followed through with their plan. The moose (who was the judge) decided that the tortoise would get a 1000 foot head start, the hare would start at the start line and the rat would have a 1200 foot head start. Tortoise, Hare and Rat (cont.) Narrator: Before long, the animals were in their places.
Bang! The pistol cracked. They were off.
Commentor: Aaaaand, there goes hare, off like lightning! My speed detector say he is going six feet per second!! Tortoise, Hare, and Rat (cont.) Commentator: The tortoise is going at a slow, but steady pace of 3/4 of a foot per second. What?!!! The rat is going backwards at a rate of two feet per second. They've all crossed the one minute mark: the hare is at 360 feet, the tortoise is at 1045 feet, and the rat is STILL going backwards and he's at 1080 feet! Tortoise, Hare, and Rat (cont.) Commentator: Aaaaand, at 72.72 seconds, and 1054.54 feet the tortoise and the rat cross paths!!! Tortoise is still going steady!! There he goes! The tortoise might win again!

At 190.47 seconds and 1142.85 feet form the starting line, the hare passes the tortoise!!! Looks like the hare is going to make a comeback after all... Tortoise, Hare and Rat (cont.)
