Worksheet Overview

There's a creepy-crawly on the ground.

Then you see a bug sitting on a leaf.

What's that thing flying out of the tree?




There are animals all around us, pretty much wherever we go (if we look for them), and being able to tell what they are, by learning what features they have, is an important part of finding out about our world and the creatures that we share it with.

In this activity, we will be looking at questions that describe an animal, or where it lives, and then give us choices of what it might be.


See how easy you find this and if there are some new things you learn along the way.
