Activities PowerPoint – I have created a PowerPoint that shows some of the worksheets based on the same theme. It is designed as a means to introduce and talk about follow up activities while providing some suggested answers. Activities and suggested answers include:• Completing sentences using a word bank: set of different fact sheets about mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects • Sorting animals into herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and insectivores categories• Classification: graph of the different groups.• Matching descriptions to pictures of animals.• Looking at different units of measurements (weigh and length) identifying which animal is the shortest/longest, lightest/heaviest and sorting numbers in the correct order.• Looking at and sorting fiction and non-fiction book covers; describing in words the differences between fiction and non-fiction; writing a book review.• Writing a story plan; describing characters; creating a book cover and blurb; what to write for the beginning, middle and end. NB: This PowerPoint does not provide information about this topic. For resources that give lots of useful information, please check my set of differentiated PowerPoints on the same theme.
