The Story: Marli’s Tangled Tale by Ellie Jackson is a story adventure with a puffin called Marli who gets tangled up in helium balloon strings while she is out at sea. With the help of the local wildlife center, Marli is cut free and rehabilitated just in time to get back to her family.
The story focuses on the impact on animals when we release helium balloons into the environment. It encourages understanding of litter dropping and the importance of beach clean-up.
Proposed Plan: 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Activity 1: Story: Read Marli’s Tangled Tale to students. Children follow on the SmartBoard and answer questions related to what we are reading and viewing.
Activity 2: A short very short talk about puffins including where they lay their eggs here in North Wales and what we can do to help Puffins like Marley
Activity 3: Make a paper plate puffin with a pledge not to drop litter so we can keep animals like Marli safe.
