Suggested activity use
This activity can be used at the start or end of a lesson to stimulate discussion. It could be used as a hook into the topic of animals, including humans, and help encourage children’s questioning or researching skills.
If children are to research content further, websites, books and other sources of information may need to be looked up before the lesson, so that children can easily access quality information.
