Compare and Contrast the Diets of Different Animals

Compare and Contrast the Diets of Different Animals

A pick-up-and-go lesson covering the Year 3 National Curriculum objective, compare and contrast the diets of different animals including pets. This presentation includes vivid images of different animals alongside their diets in general terms. It prompts children to think about what their own pets eat, or mustn’t have and links to a BBC classroom clip. I have used this lesson in Year 3, and the children were exceptionally engaged. The activity creates an imaginary scenario, where there is a new zoo keeper who has lost her notes explaining which bucket of food is to be taken to which enclosure. Children help by matching the menu with the enclosure. This resource includes: lesson plan, activity, lesson presentation, and printed L.O. Tip: Print the activity on the ‘two sides per sheet’ setting to fit into books nicely without wasting too much paper and ink, leaving space for additional writing below. I hope you enjoy using this resource. I would be grateful if you could leave a review once it has been used in class.

Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

This is a great whole class teaching activity while children work in groups to identify different groups of animals. Each and every group is given a full set of flash cards, key headings and features to sort out into vertebrates, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs, insects and minibeasts while cooperatively making decisions and discussing the different possibilities. You can provide each group with 4 x A3 sheets of paper (attached together) and glue sticks/ blu tack to create group posters in order to share and present findings with the rest of the class….a lot more discussions there! As follow up activities, I have created a number of charts to use key information/clues to identify animal groups as well as worksheets: **Vertebrates – mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Table: Recording animal features - tick or colour • Facts about mammals: Complete sentences using word bank – and label/name animals (pictures). • Facts about birds: Complete sentences using word bank – and name where (place) they mostly live. • Facts about fish: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about reptiles: Complete sentences using word bank – and illustrate skin type/pattern. • Facts about amphibians: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about sea mammals: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Write the names of these animals (from list) in the correct group. **Invertebrates – molluscs, crustaceans, insects, minibeast : ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Challenge! Chart: Sort and group each question and animal groups. Place them in the correct order to complete the chart (cut and paste activity). • Facts about molluscs: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about crustaceans: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. **Invertebrates – insects and minibeasts: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Facts about insects and minibeasts: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts of a mosquito. • Match each group of animals (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects) with a place where they are mostly likely to live (illustrations of different environments).

Evolution Assembly or Class Play

Evolution Assembly or Class Play

Evolution Assembly or Class Play Cast of 30 (easily adjustable) Duration: Around 20 minutes without the inclusion of music suggestions. This script has ‘serious factual content’ including a timeline from the beginning of time to the present, but it has plenty of humour including a seriously bad set of jokes at the end! This assembly or class play is based on the Evolution and Inheritance unit of study and has the following coverage: How fossils record changes that living things undergo over millions of years Shared characteristics of parents and offspring Adaptation and evolution of animals and plants in order to survive in different habitats/how characteristics are acquired rather than inherited/natural selection How creatures change over long periods of time Sample Text: (Enter Giant Tortoise slowly) Narrator: (Sarcastically) In your own time! Giant Tortoise: Hey! No need to rush! And it’s not like I have any predators to run from. Narrator: Just as well! Have you had far to come? Giant Tortoise: I live on the Galapagos islands, off the South American coast. Narrator: Whoa! That’s a long way! Giant Tortoise: Not as far as Mr Darwin travelled on his five-year trip! Narrator: So, you met the great man? (Enter Finch) Finch: We certainly did! Took some of us home with him! (Enter Darwin) Darwin: (To Giant Tortoise and Finch) You got me thinking about (To Giant Tortoise) Different patterned shells (To Finch) Different shaped beaks. You see, these creatures were different on each island suggesting they had adapted to their immediate environment. Giant Tortoise & Finch: (Together) Fascinating! (Exit Giant Tortoise & Finch) Narrator: Shall we look at some other examples? Darwin: (Enthusiastically) Certainly! Music 3 Parade of the Charioteers (Enter Stag and Peacock, both strutting proudly across stage) Stag: Look at my fine antlers! (Looks at audience) Anyone want to take me on? Peacock: Huh! No need for any violence! Just look at my magnificent display (opens tail to full effect). Who could not be impressed with me? Narrator: (Thoughtfully) Hmm. They are rather winning features Stag: It’s called ‘survival of the fittest’! Peacock: You’ve gotta have what it takes you know!

For each lesson idea, the corresponding Primary National Curriculum objectives have been clearly stated for ease of use. This booklet was originally created specifically for a Junior School’s pond and woodland area, however, after receiving a lot of interest on our Twitter page, we have decided to publish this resource in order to inspire others to take teaching outdoors!

Parts of a Flower. Pollination and Fertilisation Lesson

Parts of a Flower. Pollination and Fertilisation Lesson

KS2 Science PowerPoint Lesson and worksheets on parts of a flower, pollination and fertilisation. This is the fourth lesson in a series of Year 3 Science lessons on Plants. Corresponds to the Year 3 Science statutory requirements: explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. Can also be used in Year 5 : describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals. 17 pages including the front cover and Hoppy Times terms and conditions. In this lesson, students learn about the main parts of a flower (petals, sepals, pistil, stigma with anthers, etc.) and their functions. This is an opportunity for the students to learn about the flower parts as they dissect them. I recommend using daffodils, lillies or tulips. A couple of paper flowers are also included for cutting out if live flowers are not available. Students also learn about the processes of pollination and fertilisation. The PowerPoint is provided with explanations, video links, interactive activities and a plenary. Also included are differentiated dissection mats - the idea is for the student to remove the flower parts and put them in correct places on the mat. They can then be secured by sticky back plastic or tape. Bonus - Flower Parts Poster and 3 labelling worksheets (differentiated). The PowerPoint is editable, making it easier to customise and tailor to the needs of your class. HoppyTimes

Outdoor science: keyword scavenger hunt

Outdoor science: keyword scavenger hunt

This lesson developed by accident when I asked the children to find there own seeds for a lesson on looking at seeds. They came back with all parts of the plant, showing me how little knowledge they had of the parts of a plant when exposed to the choice of the outside world. Some great ideas. Part of a series.
