  • Would you rather be a Friendeshan, or an Oily Spoily?
  • Do you think our world looks more like Planet Friendesha, or like Planet OIly Spoily?
  • Do you know the names of any other planets in outer space?
  • Do you think that there really are other beings from other planets?
  • What funny feature do all of the animals on the Planet Og have in common?
  • The Friendeshans have fun pozzi-nicknames. Can you think of a pozzi-nickname for you? Can you think of one for someone else in the class?

Remember: Don't let the discussion turn to name-calling or finger pointing! If children have grievances with one another, or serious family concerns, ask them to speak with you after the class discussion.
