The Hello Trees Explorer Kit contain all 10 of the Hello Trees books and comes in a strong plastic box with a carrying strap – perfectly sized for small explorers. The kit is completed with a magnifying glass and a sticker set – so children can match the stickers against the real leaves of the trees. Also available as a classroom pack which leaves out the magnifying glass and sticker sheet.
Loved by teachers, play leaders and volunteers across the UK, the Hello Trees books are easy to handle, easy to read and contain everything required to teach the KS1 Plant Science statutory requirements for children to be able to identify common deciduous and evergreen trees. Every book features a little Dormouse who guides you through the seasons with things to spot, feel and find on every page, accompanied by beautiful, botanically accurate photographs and illustrations – with all text in an ‘easy to read’ font for new independent readers.
The books are designed to be used at any time of year and help explain the changes that our native trees go through as the months progress – so you can find out why your car gets sticky if you park under a lime tree, what happens when birds eat holly berries and which leaves are bigger, or smaller, than your hand.
A resource page with free-to-download Tree Flower quizzes which offer, in quiz format, questions – and answers – about the flowers of ten common trees can be found here.
