The teaching card is about going to the zoo. Underneath the picture are instructions addressed to the student to write a story and describe what is happening. This is followed by suggestions of words that could be used. The aim of the card was to teach grammar and the composition of sentences. The card originally belonged to Margaret Rona Gillies who was a teacher at Turiroa Primary School, Wairoa in 1928 - 1930. On the back is written the names of the children who took the cards home at night for their English homework.
Printed on card with coloured and black ink.
