To share with others the things that are valuable to you.

We walk away knowing

There are many things in my life which are valuable to me.

What do you treasure?

This fun download is a fold-your-own mini treasure chest.

Younger tamariki will need some help with the cutting and folding of this chest, so it's a great way to practise succeeding together!

When the chests are made, students can fill them with things that they treasure. These could be real things, or pictures of things that are valuable to them, e.g. their family, pets, favourite places, etc.

Take some time to share as a class the different things that each person chooses as their treasures.

You can choose between an A4 printable that folds a small treasure chest, or two A3 sheets which make a large chest.
