Source: Between the Lions: "City Mouse and Country Mouse & The Happy Hocky Family Moves to the Country!"
In this video segment from Between the Lions, Cyril is a mouse who lives in the city and always wakes up to the sounds of the city. On the subway ride to work, everyone talks on cellphones. Cyril's job is downtown, in the center of all the hubbub. Cyril likes that, but sometimes wishes for a little peace and quiet. Cindy lives in the country in the center of a cedar forest. She wakes up to birds singing. Everything else is pretty quiet. Cindy likes working in her garden, but sometimes she gets bored and she thinks it would be nice to have a little more excitement. Cindy and Cyril each get the idea to call the hit show "Switching Places" and switch homes for a while. The show's song plays while the mice pack their belongings. At first, Cindy loves living in the city, and Cyril loves living in the country. But then, the sounds of the city keep waking Cindy up and the sounds of the country keep waking Cyril up. Each mouse begins to miss their respective homes. They decide to switch back. The song for "Switching Places" plays while the mice go back to their homes and then celebrate. Featured soft "c" words: Cyril, Cindy, center, city, cedar, Celeste, cell phones, celery, and centimeter.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
