English: How would you explain what is happening in these animations? Which is your favourite? Which do you think looks most like the animal itself?

ABC. Alphabet. English Alphabet fun game for kids. Bembo's Zoo: An Animal ABC Book. ABCs game where the letters of an animal's name transform into the animal.

 

Today we are going to investigate some different calligram designs

These are called calligrams and are a type of poem.

  • Watch Bembo's Zoo's annimation.
  • Look at the design for ‘Octopus’ on Bembo’s Zoo Examples. Can you find every letter of the word?
  • Describe the part of the octopus that each letter is representing eg: O is the round body 
  • Challenge yourself to investigate the designs for Hippopotamus and Antelope as well.
  • Try making your own calligram. What animal will you choose? Pick an animal from Bembo's Zoo or a dinosaur
  • Write out the letters in the name of the animal and then try arranging them into the shape of the animal. Work in pencil first and then draw your final design in pen. Have fun smiley

Show your design to a grown-up. Ask them to watch Bembo’s Zoo with you so that they understand the idea of a calligram.
