Child of Galaxies Teaching Ideas

This resource is full of teaching notes and prompts around the brilliant picture book, Child of Galaxies, by Blake Nuto and Charlotte Ager.

These notes have been written by the teachers at the CLPE to provide schools and settings with ideas to develop comprehension and extended provision around Klaus Flugge Prize-shortlisted texts for children of all ages. They build on our work supporting teachers to use picture books to enhance critical thinking and develop creative approaches in art and writing. We hope you find them useful. 

This book is particularly suitable for children aged 5-11.
