Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Can you remember being a baby? Of course not - you only started to remember things when you were a little older.

 

Babies, toddlers and children are able to do certain things as they grow up. Also, they need different things at different stages as they grow.

 

In this worksheet think about what a baby, a toddler and a child need and also think about what they can do - that will help you to answer the questions.

  • Question 1

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these does not eat anything except milk?

CORRECT ANSWER
baby
EDDIE SAYS
When new humans are born these babies cannot eat anything except milk - often they have no teeth at all and their tummies are not ready for solid food. Milk is a wonderful food as it contains all the nutrients that babies need in order to grow healthily.
  • Question 2

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these can run and kick a football?

CORRECT ANSWER
child
EDDIE SAYS
Toddlers are just getting used to using their legs to move around - they run sometimes, but often fall over as their legs aren't very strong yet. Kicking a football is going to be difficult! A child is able to run around and she can balance her body to kick a football now.
  • Question 3

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these can walk upstairs with help?

CORRECT ANSWER
toddler
EDDIE SAYS
Toddlers are learning to walk and will need help going up and down stairs otherwise they might fall down and hurt themselves. A child can go upstairs safely on their own (as long as they look where they are going!).
  • Question 4

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these needs to sleep every few hours?

CORRECT ANSWER
baby
EDDIE SAYS
Babies are going through lots of changes as they grow and so they need to sleep quite a lot. Toddlers are very active and so might just have an afternoon nap as well as sleeping at night.
  • Question 5

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these is learning to read?

CORRECT ANSWER
child
EDDIE SAYS
Toddlers are having a hard enough time trying to sort out walking and balance - they'll be starting to talk soon too. So it's a child, who has learned to chatter already, who is learning to read.
  • Question 6

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these can ask for things by pointing and using a word or two?

CORRECT ANSWER
toddler
EDDIE SAYS
Babies might seem to be pointing but they don't understand what lifting their arm means. A toddler will point at a toy and say "Please" as they learn to communicate with adults and start to learn the language.
  • Question 7

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these asks for things by crying?

CORRECT ANSWER
baby
EDDIE SAYS
Babies don't have any words yet, so the only way they can say things like "I'm hungry", "I'm tired" and "I need my nappy changing" is by crying; then her parents knows she needs something. Toddlers will often do this too, but they are starting to use some words to help explain what they need.
  • Question 8

Here are pictures of a baby, a toddler and a child:

 

BABY TODDLER CHILD

 

 

Which one of these can go to the toilet without any help from an adult?

CORRECT ANSWER
child
EDDIE SAYS
Babies use diapers that need changing by an adult. Toddlers will be potty trained so they can learn how to go to toilet, but they still need supervision by an adult to make sure that they are wiped properly and remember to wash their hands. Older children are usually able to do all this by themselves.
