Small Zebra Family
Take a walk on the wild side and make friends with our small zebra family. With mum, dad, big brother and baby brother these models are beautifully detailed and just the right size for little hands to explore. Why not pair them with our other small animal families and go on a real jungle adventure!
This young family gives children so much opportunity to discover and explore what it's like to live in the wild. Look at their habitat and how they forage for food or discover why they have stripes all over their backs. Children can use the family as objects for counting, explore the intricate patterns on their bodies or even compare size and weight, a superb way to make maths fun! Older children could use them as a stimulus for writing, writing stories using them as the main character.
How does this resource support the curriculum?
Understanding the World – Children may play with small world characters to investigate their environment noticing similarities, differences and details. Children may make observations of animals and find out about similarities and differences between familiar animals.
Expressive Arts and Design – Children may begin to introduce a story line or narrative to their play; building stories around toys and working collaboratively with other children to act out their ideas.
