This primary resource helps children to think about Easter and spring time. How well do you know the species of animals that we see in Spring? Can you identify the mystery baby animal? Can you find the Easter eggs?

The resource will help with cross-curricular teaching at Early Years Foundation Stage to introduce children to the topic of Easter. This primary resource is a good introduction to teaching about Spring; baby animals; Easter and Easter traditions.

Pupils will learn about Easter and springtime, and use their learning as a vehicle for problem solving, literacy and spelling skills, physical development and visual cognition — in our National Geographic Kids’ Easter puzzles primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used as a printed handout for class time or homework.

Activity: Ask children to complete the puzzles on the spread, either in groups, pairs or with help from their parents at home.

They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
