A lone figure stood in the clearing. Light streamed down through the forest canopy.


  • Who is the figure?
  • What are they thinking?
  • How are they feeling?
  • What are they doing with the birds?
  • What would you ask them?
  • Where is the light coming from?
  • What will happen next?
  • Make a picture in this style by painting the background first and then sticking on black paper cut outs for the trees and figure and white paper cutouts for the birds.
  • Try this fun colour mixing activity with coloured ice to show how green and other secondary colours are made.
  • Make a list of different kinds of forest and mark where they are found on a world map.
