Did you know that ‘kōwhai’ is both the Māori word for yellow AND the name of one of our most well known trees? We also have a native bird called a ‘Yellowhead!’ Celebrate the letter Y with a fun colouring sheet and mini book.
Celebrate the letter X by X-raying some of our native creatures! What do the skeletons of a kiwi, tuatara, kākāpō & snapper look like?
This X = X-ray activity set includes:
- A work sheet to complete – colour the animals, then draw your ideas about what you think their skeletons look like on the x-ray page. Attach the flaps, then open and shut to X-ray your animals
- 2 different versions of the sheet included (one with blank spaces for the children to draw their own creatures to be X-rayed)
- This activity includes a supporting photograph sequence so you can see how the activity is used and assembled, plus the completed product
- Also included is a ’bookmark’ style strip of paper on the lefthand side of the sheet that matches the activity and letter being focused on—perfect for slipping into the kid’s book bag at the end of the day to support them to share their learning when they take their creations home
