Description

Need a hands-on activity to help students understand how images add meaning to text? Our eye-catching My Magic Tree Craft is the perfect resource for you!

To complete this task, students will add meaning to the sentence ‘My tree is magical.’ by decorating a tree that magically grows whatever they choose. This can be done by:

  1. Adding craft items, such as pom poms, buttons or sequins etc.
  2. Adding items from nature, such as leaves, flowers or petals etc.
  3. Adding cut-out pictures from magazines or brochures, such as food, clothes or toys etc.
  4. Drawing their chosen magical items!

Simply print one of our three templates and have your students create the most magical tree they can think of!

Once all crafts are complete, use them to generate a discussion about how an image can add meaning to a text. Your students will soon realise that while all their artworks share the same sentence, none look the same!

Top Teacher Tips:

  1. We recommend enlarging the backing template to A3 and printing onto coloured cardstock.
  2. Extend students’ learning by having them describe their completed craft to a partner or use it as a descriptive writing prompt!
