Draw a picture of each animal. Around each animals write down features of the animal, if the animal is a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore and practise making the animal sound. 


Activity 3: Animal charades

Act out and pretend to be the different animals you have focused on today.

If you are a carnivore pretend you are hunting for prey? If you are a type of bird, how far can you fly? What do you see?

Get a member of your family to guess what animal you are. You can take turns and turn this activity into a family evening game :-)
