I Just Found a Kiwi in My Lunch

Listen to “I Just Found a Kiwi in My Lunch” and have students create their own verses.

Image of karaoke type song with cartoon kiwi guiding words.

This video explores food using an engaging, and sometimes silly, karaoke sing-along to the tune of She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain. Using students’ five senses to describe food can create a safe space for food exploration without pressure to try the foods.

 

How to use this resource in your classroom:

  1. Watch and sing along to the I Just Found a Kiwi in My Lunch video.

  • Cereal- sound (crunchy), sight (clustery)
