Herdwick sheep were probably introduced by Norse settlers during the Viking invasions (10th-11th c.). The husbandry of the sheep has been a large factor in shaping the culture & terrain of the Lake District. Beatrix Potter was involved with breeding Herdwicks & bequeathed 15 farms to the National Trust. Per her instructions all continue to graze Herdwick flocks.
Vocabulary Work - For the activity, I tossed vocabulary words in a lunch bag. Kids flicked the game spinner, then pulled out a word. Once they had their word, the fun began! Students act, draw, rhyme, or define their word. They might also have to put it in a sentence, name what part of speech it is, or give a synonym or antonym for it. It's a game of chance!
Spanish activities: This idea could be used to practice Spanish verbs - kids toss the ball to each other and act out the verb their thumb is touching. Spanish vocabulary could include: saltar, sentarse, correr, llorar, cantar, bostezar, bailar, etc. http://theorganizedclassroomblog.com/index.php/ocb-store/view_document/216-beach-theme-activities-sampler-pack
