Lions informative writing non chronological report and word search

Lions informative writing non chronological report and word search

This animated Power Point resource showcases the lion and informs students about a multitude of interesting facts surrounding this magnificent creature. The pupils learn about the symbolic significance of the lion as well as scientific details. They will discover lions in ancient art works, on national flags and displayed on coats of arms. They will learn the differences between male and female lions and some amazing statistics about these magnificent animals. Included in this resource are comprehension questions, a word search and further information about hybrids such as ligers and tigons. Students have the opportunity to think creatively and produce their own hybrids and draw scientific diagrams of their favourites. There is plenty here to promote further discussion and wider research. This resource would be useful when producing informative writing and non chronological reports. Alongside the Power Point is a word document which could be used independently as a homework task perhaps. All answers are included on the word document. Suitable for ages 10+
