CLASSIFYING ANIMALS ACCORDING TO THE FOOD THEY EAT

It’s been several weeks now that my year two students are working on

ANIMALS

First, they learnt the distinction between living and non-living things; then between vertebrates and invertebrates…

Later, we took advantage of such an interesting topic

TO LEARN A NURSERY RHYME, READ A WELL-KNOWN STORY AND LEARN HOW TO DRAW AN OWL …

After that, my students were able to tell by heart and to classify the animals in

BROWN BEAR using what they had learnt…

This week we will finish the unit and my students have studied a new way of classifying animals. By paying attention to the nutrition of animals they can be classified into carnivorous, herbivorous and omnivorous animals

The following worksheets provided us with  structures and vocabulary so as to talk about the subject:

animal nutrition

animal nutrition 1

animal nutrition 3

animal nutrition 2

herbivores, omnivores and carnivores

The following story came to my mind when I thought of “animals eating …”

the very hungry caterpillar

the very hungry caterpillar

After reading THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR, I share the following web site, where you can find 20 amazing transformations from caterpillar to butterflies or moths…

I hope you find these resources useful: they have been very productive and my students have enjoyed a lot.
