TASK

  • Sort a collection of domestic animals into groups according to the type of food they eat.
  • Sort into alternative groups, using their own classification criteria, and explain your reasons.
  • Record your ideas with drawings and labels on paper.
  • Add your favourite creatures to the Aspen and Larch Padlet.

 

Use the animal comparisons resource below: this includes a variety of domestic animals and different food pictures, such as meat, fish, leaves, fruit and grass, along with labels for making category sets. Use these as a starter and then compare your results with the answer sheets - how did you do?

 

Can you think of any other wild animals? Use the same category labels and food pictures with your own toy animals, drawings or photographs. I wonder if you will need to draw different food for these animals? Do whales eat fish food from a tub?

 

Have you found more carnivores, herbivores or omnivores? Is that true about all animals around the world? Which do you think there are more of? FIND OUT!
