Nga manu o Aotearoa - The birds of New Zealand
This product is currently sold out.
A collection of eight New Zealand birds to puzzle with and appreciate.
24 double sided puzzle pieces to mix and match designed for children aged 2 and up, that encourages play with different body parts of birds. Learners can put them together and 'find' eight New Zealand birds. Once matched, each bird (each made from three matching pieces) can be flipped over to reveal written information about habitat, appearance, diet and special characteristics of each distinctive New Zealand bird.
The pieces of the puzzle are able to be mixed and matched and experimental play is encouraged. What happens if you put long Pukeko legs onto the stocky body of a Kakapo? What happens if the Huia's tummy is removed and a new bird that is 'all head and feet' is made.
8 luminous New Zealand birds illustrated by Katrina Ward
Tui, Pukeko, Kakapo, Kokako, Huia, Piwakawaka, Kereru, Takahe
