Bear and Chook by the Sea


This learning resource features videos of the author, Lisa Shanahan and illustrator, Emma Quay, reading and talking about ‘Bear and Chook by the Sea’. The videos are sequenced to engage students in cross curriculum learning focusing on rich literature.

Each video forms the basis of a discrete learning activity. Lesson details for each video can be found in the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ sections. Lessons cover a range of KLA’s.

Find advice in the ‘Teaching notes’ link under each video. The videos and their related activities have also been placed in a suggested order to produce a coherent unit of work called the ‘Creating a play’ sequence, with the goal of students collaborating to create a short play in pairs.
