The Iron man



He swayed in the strong wind that pressed against his back. He swayed forward, on the brink of the high cliff.

And his right foot, his enormous iron right foot, lifted - up, out into space, and the Iron Man stepped forward, off the cliff, into nothingness. CRRRAAAASSSSSSH! Down the cliff the Iron Man came toppling, head over heels.




From rock to rock, snag to snag, tumbling slowly. And as he crashed and crashed and crashed. His iron legs fell off.  His iron arms broke off, and the hands broke off the arms. His great iron ears fell off and his eyes fell out.


1. Why do you think the Iron man stepped off the cliff?



2. How would you describe what the iron man looked like at the bottom of the cliff?



3. Find and copy a word that shows how the iron man moved in the wind.


4. What other words could you use instead of CRASH!
