The Baobab tree:

Look at the image above. What do  you notice about these trees? How are they different from the ones we normally see around us? Given the climate, in Africa, why do you think  they look like this? There is a legend that the Baobab trees are actually upside down. The part that you see is actually the roots and the leaves are underground. Write the story which describes how the trees were uprooted and turned upside down. Things to consider: Why were they turned? Who turned them? Who or what would have the strength or capacity to turn them?
