I'm going to take a nap, goodnight.
Dory--no, it's 4pm
I'm Dory, and I’m trying to learn about the Great Chain of Beings.Can you tell me what you are?
Hey, I'm Dwayne. What are you doing down here?
I am a rock and the lowest being, we can’t grow or reproduce but we are very strong. Some of us are thought to have magical powers! Inside the mineral section, gems are the highest, and sand is at the bottom.
Wow! Thank you for teaching me
Our story begins with Dory and Nemo swimming around the ocean, where Dory begins her day by going back to sleep. She then starts dreaming about The Great Chain of Being.
Wow! Who are you guys?
While Dory dreams, she begins her quest to find the lowest level on the chain; minerals.
What are you on the Great Chain of Being?
After Dory said goodbye to Dwayne, the rock, she swam upstream to find the 4th level on the chain.
Wow, look at all those chickens! Are you on the Great Chain of Beings?
Despite being a saltwater fish, Dory makes her way up a river and stumbles across plants.
Ohhhhh yeah, exactly!
Wait, like seaweed?
Dory begins to question her new friends about what they are.She then thanked the plant and swam on to a nearby farm.
Well Dory, we the 5th highest on the Great Chain of Beings! We can reproduce and grow. Our special ability is to eat soil, air, and heat. We are ranked low because we don't have eyes, brains, or other organs. Oak trees are the best of our section.
After Dory talked to the tuna fish, she carried on with her adventure.
Yes, we’re the chickens of the sea and animals on the Great Chain of Beings. Also known as tuna fish!
