The Tale of Mr Morton - Sentence Structure / Past Simple

Watch the video at:

This is a simple animated song about a man (Mr Morton) told using the past simple tense.  It is generally a simple story in which numerous verbs are repeated, making it suitable for beginner level EFL students.  Verb repetition provides students with the opportunity of listing these examples in the past simple tense, perhaps with the goal of later determining which base verbs they belong to.

This short video would add a nice change of pace to a grammar-based lesson.  Although there are references in the song to one or two grammar terms, these should not be a hindrance to the main focus of the story and could in fact be useful to those who are actually interested in grammar.
