How to use this resource in your classroom:

1. Watch and sing along to the I Just Found a Kiwi in My Lunch video.

2. After watching the video, review the foods that were included and how the song used senses to describe them.

  • Kiwis- sight (green, brown), touch (furry)
  • Coconut- sight (white), taste (sweet), touch (hairy)
  • Hummus- touch (creamy, pasty), taste (tasty)
  • Cereal- sound (crunchy), sight (clustery)
  • Milk- touch (cold, ticklish), sight (swooshy)

3. Write a new verse for the song using the downloadable activity sheet. Students can also illustrate their food choice in the lunch bag. This activity works well as a class, group or as an individual student. 

4. If students would like to share their verses, have them say or sing them to the class, another class or share with the principal!
