I can match animals to their habitats.
Children learn what a habitat is. They match 6 different animals to their habitats in a cut-and-stick activity. They explain things that the habitats provide the animals with on the writing frames provided.
I can group things according to whether they are living or non-living.
Children look at 12 pictures. They place them into 2 groups - living and non-living. They consider what the members of each group have in common, and discuss which pictures were the hardest to group.
I can group things according to whether they are alive, dead or have never been alive.
Children learn that some things are alive, some things are dead (used to be alive), and some things have never been alive. They look at 16 different objects and attempt to classify them as alive, dead or never alive. They discuss the differences between the groups.
I can explain how some animals are adapted to their habitats.
Children read about what adaptations are. They match four animals to their habitats and discuss two adaptations that each animal has that enable them to survive in their habitat.
I can name common animals and plants.
Children name a variety of familiar animals and plants. They think about ways to group them.
I can identify and name some plants and animals in the local area.
Children carry out a field investigation into three local micro-habitats. They predict what they might see, draw what they can see, and after the investigation compare and contrast the three micro-habitats.
I can create and describe a food chain.
Children learn how to read and explain a food chain. They create four of their own food chains, each containing three organisms.
I can show different sources of food using a food chain.
Children read about food chains which start with a producer and end with a human being. They use pictures to create 3 food chains, with 2, 3 and 4 elements.
