Terrific Translations

Terrific Translations

This teacher resource complements our range of lower primary poetry units by introducing language and cultural elements.

Use our large collection of resources to identify some action rhymes or other poems with simple words that can be translated to different languages. Start by changing a few words and build up to translating the entire rhyme.

Some examples that work well include:

  • Old MacDonald Had a Farm
  • Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
  • Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This is a great adaptation to your poetry unit and will get your students thinking about language while performing action poems.

As a class, research and translate simple words into relevant languages for your classroom and location.
