Book Activities for A Human for Kingsley by Gabriel Evans
A 2022 CBCA Notable Early Childhood Book this is a fun story about a dog who decided to find himself a human. With many laughs along the way Kingsley finally find his perfect human, a young girl, although quite a few of her behaviours surprise him – like taking a bath on purpose.
The team at Learn From Play have created 4 activities for this story that are perfect for children from pre-school or kindergarten or their first year at primary school - foundation to Year 2. The activities teach children how to draw a dog like Kingsley, how to look after a dog responsibly, a fun activity to match people to their dogs and an activity to order the events in the story as an exercise in retelling a narrative.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
