Guy Fawkes Flashcard Story, Bonfire Night

Guy Fawkes Flashcard Story, Bonfire Night

This download includes a 12 page mini story book of the Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot. Each mini page, is half an actual page size, meaning you cut each page in half. I recommend laminating each page individually and then binding together to make a book - it'll also make it stronger and longer lasting for you. It has been simplified into a short story, with bright, eye-catching graphics. This download comes in colour/color or black and white option. Perfect for a special needs/autistic class or pre-k/k.
