Additional 'Work It Out Wombats' Resources

Step It Out! Game
Children create a set of steps for the Wombats to make a sandwich, build a sandcastle, serve a snack, and get ready to swim. They learn that sometimes order matters, and sometimes it doesn’t, as they tell the Wombats what to do first, then second, then third, then fourth, and then fifth, until all the steps are in an order that works!

One Part at a Time
Malik is having trouble learning a dance in this animated song from Work It Out Wombats!™ Ellie helps him by breaking down the dance into separate steps. Soon Malik is having fun dancing along with Ellie, Zeke, and Zadie.

Zadie’s Shell Shuffle
Zadie loses her hide-and-seek winning streak and blames it on JunJun’s singing in this animated story from Work It Out Wombats!™ But when she messes up Mr. E’s shell garden, Zadie realizes JunJun’s song is the key to fixing the pattern of colorful shells. She relies on his song to recall and recreate the pattern of repeating colors. Now that the shell garden is fixed, can Zadie and JunJun patch things up?
