This Easter primary resource gives children an opportunity to design and make springtime animals using egg shells.

Pupils will be challenged to follow instructions to make and design their own Easter animals, adapting those instructions for their own creativity in our National Geographic Kids’ Easter primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used as a printed handout for instruction in class time, or for display on the interactive whiteboard.

Activity: Ask children to complete the task on the page and adapt it for their own individual designs, using different colours or facial features / expressions for their chosen animals.

 

N.B. The following information for mapping the resource documents to the school curriculum is specifically tailored to the English National Curriculum and Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. We are currently working to bring specifically tailored curriculum resource links for our other territories; including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. If you have any queries about our upcoming curriculum resource links, please email: schools@ngkids.co.uk
