A fun and simple interactive PowerPoint to help learners recognise the similarities and differences between baby animals and their parents whilst becoming familiar with their names. Clicking on the correct animal takes the baby animal to it's parent :-)
A PowerPoint based on the baby einstein book 'Mama and Me'. The lovely pictures will help learners make the connection between animal names and images, and will stimulate discussion about animals and their young.
A simple PowerPoint with animations to explain the process of growing a plant from seed - and the basic care and conditions that will help it grow. My daughter recited this poem to me one day, but had no idea who had written it, so apologies for not being able to cite the poet. I thought it was really lovely though and would be a good introduction to planting and growing :-)
