- For Teachers
Hello. I'm wondering what "turn by turn" means in this context?
Could it be understood as "in turn" or something?
Different governments were formed, with representatives of the different tribes of animals living together within the same territory: a lion was the president, a giraffe the minister, a zebu the general, and so on, turn by turn.
