Use our printable to inspire some really creative acrostic poetry - on the thistle, emblem of Scotland.
Children can practise their handwriting with our thistle worksheets, which make a perfect accompaniment to a Scottish theme.
Children can trace over the word, first with their finger and then with a pencil. And there's a pretty picture of a thistle to colour, too.
Here we have two versions of our story paper - one lined, one with handwriting lines for younger children - complete with a picture of a thistle to colour in. Perhaps children could write their own version of how the thistle came to be the emblem of Scotland?
This thistle story paper is perfect for writing about St Andrew's Day, or for a botanical study on this lovely plant.
