This half term we have been identifying animals and their characteristics. More recently we have been looking at what animals eat and sorting them into herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We now know that carnivores eat only meat, herbivores eat only plants and omnivores eat a mixure of both. We thought about what we are, and looked at the foods a variety of animals ate and which catergory they were in.
Today the children were given 3 'poos' (playdough) from animals from each catergory. we dicected them and discussed if they were herbivores (had only leaves in), carnivores (had only bones in) or omnivores (a bit of both.)
We had so much fun pulling apart poo!
