One of the biggest expenses in running a zoo is buying food for the varied diets of the animals there.

 

Investigate how much food different animals eat.

  1. Choose an animal.
  2. Search the internet using the question 'How much food does a ______ eat? KS2'

 

Safety: Always take care when using the internet.  Use trusted websites that are suitable for children.  Use ‘KS2’ and ‘for kids’ in your search terms.  If you see anything that worries or upsets you, tell your trusted adult straight away.

 

You could present your learning in a graph or a table.

 

Which zoo animals are herbivores? Are there any insectivores?

  • carnivore
  • omnivore
  • insectivore

 

Can you create a list of animals for each term?
