Product Description
This resource is a set of 30 handwriting copy cards. Each card contains a few sentences about a notable New Zealander.

The 30 People:
Ernest Rutherford
Kate Sheppard
Sir Edmund Hillary
Sir Ápirana Ngata
Hóne Heke
Jean Batten

Sir Richard Hadlee
John Britten
Willie Apiata
Richard Pearse
Alexander Aitken
Katherine Mansfield

The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter/number shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’.

2 different sets of cards:
* with lines
* without lines

Made on A4 paper. Two cards per sheet (so the cards are A5 size).

Please remember that these are handwriting cards, not detailed information cards about each person. I could only fit about 3 sentences on each card which is obviously not enough to outline everything that you may consider important. They are however, a great starting point for further research if you are trying to teach your students about NZ history makers.

Early finishers could research further information if you have digital devices available.

Keywords: famous New Zealanders, New Zealand history makers, well known New Zealanders, famous Kiwis.
