Description

This publication and accompanying downloadable resource pack of 24 engaging activities aims to support children’s learning about animals and their lifestyles in primary classrooms. It does this by:

  • providing a rich and engaging set of activities
  • creating opportunities for discussion and debate
  • motivating children to find out more about animals and their lifestyles
  • providing a focus, a context and a purpose for learning
  • creating opportunities for self, peer and teacher formative assessment.

We recognise that animals and their lifestyles is a challenging area to teach, so we have ensured that the nature and style of the activities addresses these challenges. Each activity will help children to:

  • become more aware of what they already know and of areas of uncertainty or disagreement with their peers
  • discover patterns and relationships that link animals and their lifestyles together
  • extend their range of examples of animals and their lifestyles that illustrate these patterns and relationships
  • develop understanding of some fundamental biological concepts
  • develop their research skills through structured, systematic and purposeful activities
  • enhance their science enquiry skills in non-practical settings.
