Activity 2: Sorting animals into two groups 

Think of 10 different animals you have learnt so far. You can always go back and have a look at previous weeks.

Sort the animals into two groups - suitable for a pet, not suitable for a pet. 

Discuss why the animals are sorted in this way. Explain that some animals are suitable as keeping as pets and some are not. Animals that are not pets are known as wild.

Imagine you have a new pet. Describe it using the Pet Detective worksheet for guidance and draw your pet.
