Year 1 - What do animals eat?

On Wednesday, we learnt that some animals are herbivore - that means they only eat plants and vegetables and some eat only meat. These are called carnivores. There is another group of animals who eat both plants and meat. They learnt that they were called omnivores. The children did some sorting activities in groups and discussed what the animals eat. They noticed carnivores tended to have sharp teeth to eat their prey. They were surprised to find out that an elephant was a herbivore and some monkeys were an omnivore. 

We had some good discussions and the children found it interesting.
