Did you know that our Riroriro (Grey Warbler) rivals the rifleman for the title of our smallest bird? It’s weighs approximately 1 third the weight of a mouse!
This pack has been assembled to celebrate this amazingly unique native bird! If you’re lucky enough to be teaching or learning in a whanau group/syndicate team/pod or hub which bears its name, then you’re in for a treat.
This Riroriro ‘make & do’ pack includes:
- A mini ‘one-cut-book’ which contains little Grey Warbler related fun facts and research tasks
- A ‘keywords & colouring’ sheet containing a list of keywords to research, small colouring sheet, and 6 challenges e.g: Riroriro are heard more often than they’re seen! Find and listen to a recording of our Grey Warbler. Create a small play with a friend to share what you’ve learnt about the relationship between the Riroriro (Grey Warbler) and the Pipiwharauroa (Shining Cuckoo). Share your play with the class. **This page cleverly folds to reveal the Weka’s full name when the sheet is complete.
- A template for a Riroriro paper hand puppet for the kids to colour, assemble and have fun with!
- A Grey Warbler fact file containing basic information about its common names, threats & conservation status
- An ‘I wonder’ task card containing 3 Riroriro themed questions designed to prompt some deeper thinking about this unique bird and its habits.
- A coloured Riroriro picture card
- *All of the foldable activities come with a supporting photograph sequence so you can see how the activities are assembled and used
