What is a habitat?
Teach the meaning of the words herbivore / carnivore/ omnivor
Video explaining meaning on youtube (funny for children)
I game across a great sorting activity that’s free if you sign up to TES.co.uk. It has animals that you could give to a pair of children. It says on the page what the animal eats. I’m going to stick up three headings with omnivore/herbivore and carnivore on them. I will ask the children to arrange themselves under the correct heading in the classroom. They could work together to decide whether they needed to stand under the herbivore/carnivore/omnivore sign. Explain answers.
Complete Venn diagram which the class will stick into their copies / cut out animals that are printed on a page and stick them onto the venn diagram under the correct category.
