The idea of this emu puzzle is for the children to fill in the missing parts of the picture on the left by referring to the picture on the right. It's a great way to practise concentration and copying skills, but fun too!
Emus are strange looking birds! They are native to Australia, and are the biggest bird in Australia and the second biggest in the world (the biggest being the ostrich).
Emus have long thin necks and legs and can't fly - but they can run fast! They reach up to 2 metres in height - that's 6 foot 6 inches tall! They can go for a very long period of time without eating, if necessary.
Fun fact: Emus can kick - hard! It is their main defence mechanism.
