To celebrate NAIDOC Week we are giving two primary students in Australia the opportunity to win a stack of books written and illustrated by Indigenous creators!
The Lizard Gang will introduce your students to Zed, Boo, Eliza and Zoro – a spirited gang of monitor lizards who are constantly trying to outdo each other. They live deep in the Australian bush and are forced to learn the real meaning of teamwork when they have to band together to escape a raging flood.
As these materials are subject to copyright, we have sought permission from the publisher, Magabala Books, and the illustrator, Grace Fielding, to make this wonderful colouring sheet available exclusively for this Reading Australia competition.
The colouring sheet accompanies the resource for The Lizard Gang. It is the perfect activity for your students to complete during NAIDOC Week, and a great introduction to learning about Indigenous culture.

- Download the colouring page and hand it out to your students
