Please note that this version of the resource is for children in Prep/Foundation year and Year One. There is another resource for students in Years 2 to 5.
This 60-page resource has been developed to support comprehension of the picture book, "The Green Goggles" by Kris Sheather. It would make an excellent picture book for the 2017 CBCA Children's Book Week theme, "Escape to Everywhere". When Pete puts on his green goggles, he escapes into the back yard and into his imagination :)
You will need a copy of the picture book to use this resource most effectively.
Please note this is an Australian picture book, therefore Australian spelling is used.
