Popcorn: Countries Resources
Countries is a series of ten books in the Popcorn range that introduces children to other countries. Each title explores the geography of a country and how people live there. These books link directly with the unit in geography: Where in the world is Barnaby Bear? These books can also be used in literacy as they feature many examples of report text, such as contents, non-chronological text, maps, captions, index, glossary, and more.
The downloadable resources that support this series comprise teacher’s notes and a photocopiable worksheet for each title. These enable you to ensure that children have understood key concepts or ideas. Use the worksheets in a guided reading session, for individual projects, topic-based group work or for homework:
