Anzac Ted is a great story written and illustrated by Belinda Landsberry. Read the story to the students or let them listen to Max Cryer reading the story on YouTube. Once students are familiar with the story, they could:

  • describe the Anzac Ted
  • write a diary entry 
  • retell the story about Anzac Ted going to war
  • create a narrative about another toy going to war.
