Educator Kits

To support local early childhood educators and share the joy of the 2019, One Book One Bundy title "The Smallest Turtle" by Lynley Dodd, Bundaberg Regional Libraries have designed three Educators Kits. These kits are centred on the themes from "The Smallest Turtle", such as the ocean, sea animals, turtles and much more. Each kit has a unique focus allowing you to choose the kit that will support your lessons and curriculum.

Which one interests you first?

  • Drama and Storytelling Kit
  • Environmental Sustainability Kit
  • Maths and Science Kit

Each Educators kit has been designed to be versatile and adaptable to suit the needs of the curriculum and your students. The items in the kit are suitable for children aged 3 to 7 and can be used for extension activities, small group work, for an activity corner or curiosity space, as an introduction to a theme plus so much more. Use as many or as few items from the kit, it is your choice!

It is hoped that each kit will help you provide a range of enhanced learning experiences while addressing curriculum demands. Refer to the table below to view the suggested curriculum areas (within the Early Year Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and the Australian Curriculum) each kit may be used to address.
