Introduction to London Zoo (presentation & activity)

Introduction to London Zoo (presentation & activity)

This set of resources is a great introduction to London Zoo. It is suitable for children in KS1 and lower KS2. The presentation first locates London Zoo within the UK and London itself. Children then find out a variety of interesting facts about the zoo. Next the activity challenges children to write a fact file about London Zoo. It is differentiated four ways: LA - cloze procedure activity (children write missing words) LMA - cloze procedure activity (children write whole sentences) UMA - children write own fact file (with sentence starters and vocab prompt) UA - children write own fact file (with vocabulary prompt) I’ve included an editable version of the activities too.
