This title supports the following learning objectives for Key Stage 2 Science. Students should be taught to: Recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. Identify that animals get nutrition from what they eat. Construct and interpret food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey. Identify how animals are adapted to suit their environment. Describe the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. Recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents. Each book in this series of 10 gives students the chance to work scientifically: 1. Ask questions and use scientific enquiries and evidence to answer them 2. Set up simple practical enquiries and tests 3. Make observations, take measurements, use scientific equipment 4. Gather, record, classify and present data using scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams and charts 5. Use results to draw conclusions, make predictions and ask new questions. This series is supported with free downloadable teacher resources and worksheets.
